Nails and psoriasis

Nails and psoriasis

Does anyone have psoriasis on the back of their hands and if so does it affect your nails as mine are terrible and I have to wear false ones.

Yes do you feel the ridges in your nails. I had to wear fake nails for years because my nail would break and flke off . then they got better .I think a lot of it has to do with meds.

Hi. I have psoriasis on my hands but not my nails however I am also a beautician. Best advice I can give is to stop wearing false nails. Can't stress enough how much damage they'll be doing to already damaged and weak nails. Shop around and find a ridge filler Base coat nail polish and and just paint your nails rather than using fakes. I can almost guarantee that after a while the nails condition will improve!! Hope this helps :)

Also make sure any lotions or soaps don't have perfume or fragrance in them because it will burn and make your psoriasis worse .

I used white cotton gloves and cut the fingers out of them because when I drive the sun burns my hands.
