    brown/black spots/lines on/around fingernails

    Hello, I Lupus (SLE), psoriatic arthritis with the rash on my elbows I've been told by my rhuemo that the psoriasis also affects my nails, but over the last few years I've developed blackish-brown spots on the skin around my nails and on my palm and tops of my hands and they do hurt as well. I also get the lines in my nails too.along with rashes of tiny clusters of blisters that burn and itch not to mention my nails separate from the nailbed and come off can anyone give me their opinion on what this might be?

    This does sound like Psoriasis. Have you considered seeing another doctor for a second opinion?
    If you didnt have the separation and the lines- I would be concerned that the brown spots might be some type of cancer but it really sounds like it is all connected. Maybe a dermatologist can give you some insight? They do handle any disease of the skin.
