Hey Guys! Has anyone here heard of Dr. Maebashi (of Japan, I think) and his use of biotin and probiotics to cure palmoplantar pustulosis? I came across this webpage where this person is saying that this doc cured her ppp. Here's the link in case anyone wants to look at it. It's translated from Japanese.
I find this article interesting and it kind of goes along with everything else I've heard about ppp (like it's relationship with back pain, smoking, and the use of antibiotics to help). Just curious if anyone else is trying biotin and if it's working. This article said that it took seven months to work. So maybe if you're trying biotin and it hasn't worked, maybe it takes a lot of time.
I don't know, but it sure would be nice if there was a cure like this person is claiming. I'm getting tired of steriod cream.
