I got psoriasis when I was 19, I'm now 46 . I had it in my finger nails and toe nails, my doctor kept saying its a fungal nail infection, I said its psoriasis, they kept taking clippings and each time came back ok, my doctor still put me on fungal nail tablets, terbinafine, 6 months at a time, and they cleared, then I was in pain with my feet,ankles etc, same doctor said its because you are overweight, kept going back, then saw a medical programme on TV where a 22 year old just had a baby and same symptoms as myself, they diagnosed her with psoriatic arthritis, so I went back doctors, she referred me to a consultant at hospital, I was there 3 minutes and she said you have psoriatic arthritis, what a relief, she also said its not a fungal nail infection in your nails its psoriasis, but keep taking the tablets they gave for fungal nail if its helping, I carnt now at minute as I'm on antidepressants after my boyfriend died suddenly, sorry its a long message but I just don't trust my doctors at my surgery anymore,

I have had difficulty with nail psoriasis for years - gets better, then comes back. I now have psoriatic arthritis in my wrists, fingers and ankles/toes. That has been worse, I think. I found that I could not use fingernail polish and wore rubber gloves when did dishes, etc.. I always try to dry them well and then applied cortisone cream.
