Does Anyone Have Recommendations For Really Bad Finger Nail Psoriasis?!

Does Anyone Have Recommendations For Really Bad Finger Nail Psoriasis?!

Hi everyone, I have been diagnosed as having Nail Psoriasis. I was getting steroid injections in my affected fingers plus steroid cream, but the only difference I found was they hurt less but it didn’t help them get any better
I’ve tried tea tree oil and am now only using vicks at night when has been the best thus far in that they’re never dry anymore and the nail seems to be a bit more stable

So glad that Vicks has helped! My nails were not as severe as yours, but the photo therapy has really helped…I did have a couple of injections…but feel that is was the lights twice a week…for months….no fast fix for any of this…sorry to say! I’m very happy about your success, Georgia!

Hi everyone, just wanted to update you… I had heard about using nicks vapour rub so I started to use it, on and under the mail every night before I go to bed. It’s REALLY helped! Isn’t an instant thing but pain and soreness is nothing like it used to be, plus the nails have start to grow more straight so I can cover them with nail varnish and they look practically normal! It hasn’t taken it away by any means but, so far has helped me :)
