CANhaveTODAY helps with Pachyonychia congenita

The properties of CANhaveTODAY’s skin care products may be applied to a vast array of skin conditions, and one of them is pachyonychia congenita, also known as PC. It is a rare genetic skin disorder that can significantly impact the lives of those who have it. Although rare, raising awareness about this condition is very important as it can be challenging to navigate without the right information and support.

What is Pachyonychia Congenita?  

Yellowish, thick and hard skin on the sole of the left foot

Pachyonychia congenita is a genetic disease caused by a mutation in 1 out of 5 genes encoding keratin, a protein responsible for the structure and integrity of our skin, hair, and nails. If one parent has this condition, there is a possibility that the child inherits it. Pachyonychia congenita mainly affects the palms, soles, nails, tongue, cheeks, and hair follicles.

This disorder manifests through a range of symptoms that vary in severity and impact daily life. The following are the most common symptoms of this disease:

  • Painful calluses and blisters on the bottom of the feet (plantar keratoderma)
  • Calluses on palms (palmar keratoderma)
  • Cysts most dominant, painful, and characteristic
  • Bumps around hairs (follicular keratoses) at sites where skin rubs on other surfaces like clothing (elbows, knees, waist, and hips)
  • White patches or film on the tongue and inside the cheeks (oral leukokeratosis)
  • Nerves and blood vessels in calluses
  • Deep itching of callused areas
  • Thickened nails (hypertrophic nail dystrophy)

Treating pachyonychia congenita symptoms 

A Case Of Palmar Hyperkeratosis

While there is currently no cure for pachyonychia congenita, several treatment options can help manage symptoms and provide relief. According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, here are the treatment options you have for managing your symptoms and living with pachyonychia congenita. 

  • Thinning calluses through physical abrasion or oral retinoids 
  • Moisturizing to soften the skin and prevent cracks 
  • Taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory and pain medications for temporary pain relief 
  • Wearing special orthotics or insoles for comfort and wearing comfortable shoes and socks 
  • Regular nail trimming and/or bleach baths 
  • Taking oral antibiotics/antifungals for nail infections 
  • Undergoing nail surgery in severe cases 
  • Maintaining a healthy weight to reduce pressure on affected areas 
  • Wearing gloves
