Psoriasis under nails

I've been told I've got psoriasis under my nails on my hands. I've also got rheumatoid arthritis and reynard is that why my nails come off? Also my nails are deformed and curl around, also itch under my nails. This is a worry as I've been back several times this week to the hospital checking for blood clots they thought I might lose my leg which doesn't help my depression, really bad week ever.

Thank you, Sharon

So sorry to hear you are having a rough time.

It sounds like you may have a number of reasons for your nails to be problematic - potential psoriasis and the Raynauds could both contribute.

I suggest you ask your Rheumatologist if they could get a Dermatology opinion and see if there might be a treatment that could help both your Rheumatoid and potentially nail psoriasis.

Wishing you the best of luck with your treatment.
