Nail Psoriasis Cure

Nail Psoriasis

In the previous article, we talked about psoriasis nails cure and its symptoms. In this article, we will be discussing the various treatments that you can apply right from the comfort of your home; hopefully you will get relief from your psoriasis cure efforts.

Most likely, if the psoriatic nails doesnt really cause any discomfort, then you might be better off not bordering about treatment except the embarrassing unsightly look. But if it does; then you might want to see a skin specialist for psoriasis treatment and advice.

But in the meantime, for your psoriasis cure of the nails, here are a few things that you might want to try:

  1. You can have a combination of the application of the following; steroids, salicylic acid, calcipotriol or tazarotene applied to the nails periodically.

  2. Antifungal treatment – this may only be applicable for fungal nail infection if this is also present.

  3. A steroid injected into the nail this is very painful but may be effective for some types of nail psoriasis.

  4. Removing an affected nail This might be something for everyone since it makes the fingers look odd. This can be done by applying a special type of ointment and then covering the nail for seven days. Otherwise the nail can be surgically removed using local anaesthetic.

  5. Phototherapy (light therapy) – psoralen plus ultraviolet light A (PUVA) treatment is effective for some types of nail psoriasis but not for pitting of the nail.

Most often, if the psoriasis infection is very sever the treatments mentioned above might not be actually effective. In that case, you might want to try more powerful medications that are aimed at treating severe psoriasis that will help to supress the infection. For instance; methotrexate, ciclosporin, acitretin, infliximab, etanercept, efalizumab, ustekinumab or adalimumab. But be warned, there are very serious complications and side effects associated with treatments and must not be undertaken without the express advice of a medical doctor.
