Cosmetic Procedures Are Available That Help People Deal With Nail Psoriasis
Most of us don’t really have to think about our toenails or fingernails. Those with nail psoriasis worry about their nails everyday because they are worried about how they look and they have problems using their nails to pry something loose or scrape something off. People don’t realize how visible and vital their nails are until they have a problem. Those who suffer with nail psoriasis have a painful and irritating problem that can be very hard to deal with emotionally.
About Nail Psoriasis
People without psoriasis anywhere else on their bodies can have nail psoriasis. There are prescriptive ointments and drugs to take but sometime they don’t work or make people sick. Some people try PUVA treatments and steroid injections. Some try herbals tablets and Easter medicinal cures. Dermatologists struggle because of the limited treatment options they can offer their patients.
Most dermatologists usually will try topical medications such as topical steroids, Tazorac and Dovonex for their nail psoriasis patients and then move on to other stronger treatments, such as methotrexate, cyclosporine, Soriatane and PUVA (the light sensitizing drug psoralen plus UVB light). However, systemic medications are rarely used solely for nail psoriasis because the risk/benefit ratio the treatment.Some dermatologists say using cortisone injections around the nails is the best treatment.
Cosmetic Procedures Are an Option While Medically Treating Your Nails
Cosmetic procedures can improve the look of nail psoriasis by scraping and filing down the nails and the changes in color can be buffed and polished. Artificial nails can be applied by manicurist and pedicurists can be reluctant to apply artificial nails if anything is or looks infected or to badly damaged.
