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
If anything else has worked for anyone I’d love to hear from you!
It’s such a horrible thing to have… read more

Successful Treatment For Nail Psoriasis? What Are You Doing?

Successful Treatment For Nail Psoriasis? What Are You Doing?

My teenage son has severe psoriasis on his nails only, not on his skin. It started when he was in 3rd grade and broke a toenail in taekwondo class. Now his nails are crumbly and painfully digging into his skin. Laser therapy helped a little. We are thinking to try biologics next. Anybody have advice on what worked specifically for nail psoriasis? Would love to hear from you!
