is nail psoriasis common


Nail psoriasis is a frequent symptom affecting approximately two percent of the population, that is usually associated with an already present condition of psoriasis. Its symptoms include thickening or yellowing of the nail, as well as excessive scaling and crumbling. Those with more severe psoriasis cases are more likely to present with an occurrence of this condition, yet it isn’t unheard of to experience nail psoriasis even if you have never experienced psoriasis before.

Psoriasis of the nails can cause several physical changes, from discoloration to brittleness. One such effect is onycholysis, which causes the nails to detach from the bed and thin out. Pitting is also common, with the nails thickening and becoming deformed. Colors may deteriorate too, turning yellow, brown or black. In addition, nails can become thicker and cragged with gentle ridging on their surface.

The presence of nail psoriasis can not only be a source of pain, but it can also impede one’s daily activities – think typing or can opening, for instance. Of course, there’s another side to the coin; nail psoriasis posses an embarrassment factor, as well, and it often leads to feelings of self-consciousness.

While there is no definite cure for nail psoriasis, several treatments exist to reduce inflammation and soften the affected nails. These treatments may involve applying creams, gels, or ointments directly to the nails or taking oral medications. Popular examples of such medications include methotrexate or cyclosporine, both of which have been known to target the rapid growth of the nails.

Nail psoriasis is a long-term affliction which can prove a challenge to tackle effectively. Those who are suffering from the condition must consult with their medical practitioner to find a suitable solution.
