Psoriasis can cause unsightly changes to fingernails and toenails. Changes can include nails that are thick, spotted, painful, fall or lift off, or splinter and crack. Going to a salon or wearing certain shoes can be challenging.
On MyPsoriasisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Nails are one of the most-discussed subjects.
Here are some question-and-answer threads about nails:
• I have had psoriasis on my feet for about a year now and my toenails have become really thick and close to my toes, I can no longer cut them with clippers. Any tips to help? Has this happened to anyone else?
Here are some conversations about nails:
• My rheumatologist changed my diagnosis from RA to PsA recently. Lately, I've noticed a couple of pits in my nails. Also, I've had a view bumps on my forearm that look like zits. Do any of you have pustular psoriasis?
Can you relate?
