Anyone Have Nail Psoriasis?

Anyone Have Nail Psoriasis?

1st time I have nail psoriasis. The nail has lifted from the nail bed which is causing moisture retention under my nails which is causing a fungus growth. I am investigating laser UVB treatment. What treatment and success have you had?

All my finger nails have psoriasis on them. I haven't been given anything for them. Yet. Thankfully they are just discolored and lumpy but not lifting. (Except for the finger I slammed in the door. It's pretty black and is lifting but a new nail is coming through). I try and keep them moist with the creams I use for my body. As well as keeping the nail short. I also use Biotine daily. Not sure if it helps or not but hopefully it helps with hair growth too. I think the Magnesium citrate with Biotine worked better. Especially for my nail strength.

Thankyou for sharing your story. I am trying nail hardener polish to strengthen my nails and asking the Dermatologist to do laser UVB light treatment and asking if there is a special nail polish for psoriasis. Did you try that and are all your other nails ok? I have all my nails but this year all but 2 have psoriasis and fungus under them. I choose to keep positive and happy regardless of my situation. Have a fantastic week Deb and a great Christmas/Thanksgiving 🎄💕love and hugs, Sylvia😀

Hi there. Sorry to hear about your nail when I was diagnosed with PSA one of my first symptoms was my thumbnail was disintegrating on my right hand. It has not come back.
