Fingernail problems psoriasis

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernail problems psoriasis


Avatar n tn my sister has psoriasis bad on her skin but not her nails and she mentioned one day that it could be nail psoriasis so i looked it up and i think thats what it is. but its so painful and before i got pregnant they were a little discolored but since i've gotten pregnant they have gotten so bad and they just really hurt. and i can't clip them too much because it hurts to.
Avatar n tn Your best bet for those, and the nails, would be to try to secure a definitive diagnosis from a dermatologist, because other skin conditions can mimic psoriasis and be unresponsive to psoriasis therapy. What you describe, while it involves skin, nails and vagina does not suggest any kind of systemic immunodeficiency disease that might predispose one to infection and I believe should be approached as separate health problems. Good luck.
Avatar m tn I'm not really sure if it's a rash or not. I started having problems about a month and a half ago, maybe two months. My whole thoughts were that my wife and I were too rough during intercourse, but then it didn't go away. My wife is 5 months pregnant. At first, I had two small patches of what I assume is a rash on either side of the base of my penis. Maybe the size of an index fingernail on both sides. They don't hurt, itch, or really do anything. They are just kinda red and there.
Avatar m tn I was at the car park and the vallet brought me my car keys. While he was delivering me the keys his fingernail touched the place my fingernail meets my thumb.It was just a blink of the eye long touch. I have psoriasis (you may follow my previous questions to the expert forum about previous psoriasis issues) and at the time of the touch, it was a bit irritated with no open wounds or bleeding. Just red. I didnt see if the guy's fingernails had any sort of blood or not.
Avatar n tn Hope your psoriasis clears up. My daughter has it so I can understand the problems and fustration. AKhepper. I'm on week 47 and my sx were much worse for month 10 and 11. This week they finally seem better. I didn't have any in the beginning and then mild ones so I was surprised. Hope you feel better.

Avatar n tn Fungus is unlikely, because for unknown reasons fungus affects only one hand at a time, in most cases. Eczema, psoriasis, and skin problems associated with arthritic conditions are all on the possible list. Diagnosis depends on appearance and the presence or absence of other symptoms in the skin or elsewhere. I recommend setting up an appointment for a second opinion and inquiring about a cancellation list to get seen sooner.

Avatar f tn I had terrible adrenal fatigue - in my case due to severe vitamin B12 deficiency and hypothyroidism - and could not handle ANY stress. An old term for this condition is a "nervous breakdown." Doesn't sound like you have any problems with the adrenals at least. I did have unexplained heart rhythm issues myself (went up to 250 or 300 bpm) and finally figured out I had a severe magnesium deficiency. Magnesium deficiency is a cause of high blood pressure as well.
Avatar n tn Though you may NOT exhibit other symptoms of psoriasis on other areas of your body, it is likely a type of psoriasis or acting as one. The more you pick at the nose, the more likely it is that the psoriasis will appear in other areas of the body over time. Again, the more you pick, the worse it will get. Even removing it gently will still cause the body to make more of what was removed.
Avatar f tn the thyroid controls pretty much all organs and your body so any heart problems can be serious. Hypothyroidism can cause high cholesterol, heart problems, breathing, the list goes on and on. Did you start having these paps after stopping or while on armour. Go to another dr and always get copies of your labs from other drs, they will give you copies for free. You can take these labs to another dr and or post here for guidance.
Avatar n tn Months 2-6 of tx had ongoing itching, among, obviously, many more problems. As stated, itching mitigated by fingernail pressing on the exact spot for 30 seconds. Rash origination was from broader areas that were itched by mistake. Tree Tea Oil (TTO) fixed those "dramatically". In fact, I have had a quarter size red elevated area that periodically itched on my back, sometimes erupted (Dermatologist said not serious.) which lasted 7 months.
Avatar m tn The blisters would eventually pop and there was a clear, sticky fluid that came out. Prior to going vegetarian I had no skin problems at all. When I turned vegetarian - aside from cutting out meat - I made a number of changes to my diet.
Avatar n tn Hi Karen, What your are discribing sounds like Eczema which may be that you are allegic to some home Products that you are using. If you are using Gloves of any kind, don't as it overheat your skin, burns the vitamin E and dries your skin to a point where your skin will loose it flexibility and its looks also it may make it itchy. For a chance, you must go to Totally Natural Body & Home Care Products and than, you will see what a change it will make in you life.
1548538 tn?1293875433 This is by far the best way to wash hair for any hair type, problems or no problems. It is cheap (large box of baking soda for fifty cents), healthy (no strange shampoo chemicals), and environmentally friendly (no strange shampoo chemicals and no plastic bottles). Baking soda also makes a great, gentle "body wash." Give it a try, you will love it. If not it only cost you 50 cents anyway. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn During my 2nd visit I was persistant for a name, to be given a diagnoses, and I was given one. A combination of Eczema/Psoriasis is what she said. After many more visits the diagnosis changed to Pustular Psoriasis. None of the treatment plans we tried have worked to keep it under control. So its like a cycle of getting better and breaking out again. This is the 1stce I was young that these little blisters changed my skin to hard, scaly, thick skin everywhere they are, except my legs.
Avatar n tn It gave me vaginititis, gastritis and problems with my intestines. Now i am having nerve problems and many other problems. Drs. don't have a clue how to help me. Everyday is hard to get thru. Now to hear it will take up to two years. God help us. I i to had all those test and there are a few areas of concern but not all of those are systems are related to the keflex.I have not had any of my problems until i took the keflex. Please be careful with this drug.
Avatar f tn OMG I am so relieved I have found people who have the same thing as me!!! Mine first appeared in January and we couldnt get an appointment at the dermatologist coz theyre all so busy.It was first a coin sized thing right below my nostril that was red and very sensitive, it would then kind of get white wrinkly flakes, burn and itch like crazy, I cant put makeup on or any cream or it gets worse.
Avatar n tn Sounds like the psoriasis i have had since i was 7 or 8. I am 23 now and it just comes and goes with time as it pleases. NOTHING seems to help, except wearing rubber gloves at night to keep the skin moisturized. This helps keep it from cracking a little bit. I have tried all the different creams for it and none ever work long, if at all. Tazorac, Elocon, cortizones, etc...
Avatar n tn I scratch them so much that I have fingernail marks all over my legs and sometimes even brusies. This causes my legs to look horrible. I'm so ashamed that I won't wear dresses or shorts. I haven't been to the doctor yet just because everything I have read hasn't given me much hope on a clear diagnosis. This has been an ongoing problem usually I have the severe itching for a few months then it will go away and out of the blue will appear again.
Avatar n tn I never had these kind of problems till the tube was put into my ear, thats why i found the allergy thing interesting.. Maybe im allergic to something in the tube.. Oh, and its also my left ear.. No problems with my right ear at all that has NO tube in it.. Anyone else have a tube in the ear that is the problem ear??
288415 tn?1231634102 Since I was a child I have had ear problems but over the past few years I have had increasingly maddening ear problems. I have used drops and anti biotics. I sense relief then the symptoms return. Most days I can hear but am constantly aware that my ears are itchy. The challenge is to not itch. If I itch, I usually get flaky stuff that I literally can lift off my inner ear.If I itch too much it becomes wet and begins draining a wet clear fluid.
Avatar n tn I too am overweight and have problems with an odor from my belly button along with a slight liquid sometimes. It does seem weight is a common denominator...interesting. I also have a lot of female problems and noticed some others of you do as well so it makes me wonder if its connected. It is nice to know there are others who share this disturbing problem!! Thanks girls.
Avatar n tn A biopsy is different from a culture in an apropriate media. For myself, It's hard to believe that after 50 yrs of having no skin problems something just shows up due to ? and because of being in a particular area and spreading down the thumb slowly I tend to think is some bug rather than stress. I am trying and learning whatever I can.
Avatar n tn any chance these problems occur after sex? Blisters could also be a sign of some type of dermatitis/allergy to condoms, foam, i've even heard where women develop a sensitivity to semen. Personally, I had one occurance w/a lambskin condom that caused vaginal itching, burning and swelling. Also tampons, bath soap douches can cause reactions as well. I cant use odor-absorbing tampons either..they casu itching/burning..I am also fair-complected and have sensitive skin.
Avatar n tn Because when a person wears contact lens and has problems with redness, irriation, watering, sensitivity to light, foreign body sensation, discharge 90% plus its the contacts that is causing the problem.
Avatar n tn I didn't take the Xanex because I want to give this therapy a chance to work. I have looked up Levator Spasms on Google but can only find information about problems with the rectum. I hope gives all of you some new direction in finding a solution to this problem.
