I have been suffering from PPP years. It is beginning

Resolved Question:

I have been suffering from PPP for many years. It is beginning to negatively impact my life and I feel it needs to be addressed. Every where I have looked the removal treatment is extremely expensive and out of my price range. Is there an affordable way to get it removed? I know it is nothing to seriously worry about, but it has effected relationships I have had and as a result it is now impacting my life. Thanks.

PPP is Palmoplantar pustulosis and is a long term condition which affects the skin of the palms and soles
It can sometimes occur with the skin condition psoriasis
you can travel to other countries and look into medical tourism like to Thailand where they have very good doctors who could remove the skin lesions for less than what you have to pay in the UK.

The cost over here as around £600-700. If I was to fly to somewhere such as Thsiland the overall cost would be similar. Are there no other afforable ways to get it removed within England?
