Hi Jane

Usually with psoriasis the client can have a condition called onychlosis if this is the case and it is quite severs it is normal to keep the nails short and dry to avoid anthing getting under them.

What I trend to do is if there is only a little evidance of the then I would manicure but adivse client to wear gloves etc and keep short and dry

Hope this helps:hug:

Dead skin cells do not shed naturally with Psoriasis and so naturally they back up and get thicker so exfoliation is extremely helpful for psoriasis.
I personally would use a chemical exfoliant such as dermalogicas gentle cream exfoliant then i would apply barrier repair cream to provide protection and repair damaged skin cells.
Onycholysis is usually brought about by excessive filing or infection.
An infection causing this is quite possible due to the dead skin cells harbouring bacteria and then germs getting into the imparred barrier function.
In which case I would use Thymol a gentle antiseptic available at young nails.
But since you did not mention nail bed seperation I would try the exfoliation for def !
hth let me no ...jo :hug:

I have a nail client who has this on her thumb. She has it all over her body as well. We have tried everything under the sun and moon to help get it cleared up but have found nothing at all. It isn't getting any better nor worse. The reason to keep her nail (s) short is because there isn't much holding the nail on. My client has bumped hers a few times and said it is the worse pain.

Now my question is this: Why this is one nail of hers soooo rock hard and strong compared to her other nails. She said it never use to be this strong until the psoriasis got to it. And it isn't thick.
