Re: Biopsy for nail psoriasis
Before my psoriasis got really bad I asked a dermatologist about my icky toenails. He said it was most likely a fungus, but when it didn't grow he told me it was psoriasis. I DID have skin lesions, but I don't think there's much else it can be. If you are already seeing a rheumatologist, I'd just tell him what you suspect. Do your fingers ever look like little Vienna sausages? That's what my fingers looked like in the beginning and I've seen it used in every description of psoriatic arthritis. (I was so surprised when I saw it listed as a symptom because I kept saying to people "don't they look like little Vienna sausages?". Enough of that!) Once you can get an actual diagnosis, you can treat it. Good luck!
