When Psoriasis Picks on Your Nails
Sometimes psoriasis goes beyond your skin and affects your fingernails and toenails. For some people, psoriasis attacks only their nails and nothing else.
Fortunately, there are ways you can get your nails back in shape—but it will take a little patience.
What It Looks Like
Many people with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis have nails that turn yellow or become thick, pitted, or rippled. Sometimes, the nails even crumble and become loose from the skin under the nail.
