nail psoriasis, pitting

Hi there... ok, i've had nail psoriasis for about 10 years now... my nails have pitting, and are slghtly raised.

i have noticed that their condition gets worse with stress.

i had them checked out about 4 years ago. the doc was supprised that it was just my nails that were affected, saying that usually the skin's affected too.. so thank god for small mercies.

she did say to me that an injection into the nail beds could help... has anyone done this... or have any other tips on how to treat this?

Re: nail psoriasis, pitting

It's up to you, but from what I have read, it doesn't help much if at all. Nail psoriasis can affect only the nails, only the skin or both.
