Nail Psoriasis (cont.)

Self-Care at Home

In areas where your nail has loosened, gently trim the nail back to the skin where it is connected. This will allow your medications to work better. All nail care must be very gentle. Vigorous nail care can cause your psoriasis to flare. Attempt to avoid injuring your nails so that your nail doesn't loosen more and so that the area doesn't become infected.
