I have been on Otezla over 4 yrs. It has worked great for me but the last 6 months my psoriatic arthritis has really gotten worse. My psoriasis itself is still cleared up but my nails and my joints are not doing so great. I’m trying to decide if I’m just having a flare up of my psoriatic arthritis or if the Otezla is just not working anymore. Have any of you had this happen and if so, what did you try next?
I have had toenail psoriasis in the past which caused my nails to fall off or crumble away. My fingernails have ridges in them and I am seeing white hard crumbly skin appearing along the edges of my fingernails. It is quite painful to try to remove it. Is this another form of nail psoriasis?
I have become short tempered ,no patience,mental clarity or ability to concentrate. I go through the roof With just regular sounds. Like when the telephone rings. I am very crabby and can not get started doing anything when i first wake up
But I am nore concerned about ONE nail on my left thumb. The cuticle hardens and had to be shaved down so often, it has receded 2 to 3 millimeters... and the left 3 to 4 millimeters of the nail are always scaly and thick now. Anybody having success getting the cuticle to grow back? Or getting the nail to grow in properly again?
