Nail Psoriasis


Nail psoriasis can alter the way your nails look. In some cases, they get thick and change color or shape. They can also feel tender and be painful. As psoriasis affects the nail as it grows, nail psoriasis can be difficult to treat. Look for advice and share your experiences with nail psoriasis with the community here.
