My fingers split under the nails and on the side of the nail because of nail psoriasis. Feels like a splinter is being inserted ever so slowly and the result when symptoms start to appear is much joint pain and stiffness, and muscle aches. Sometimes my entire body feels affected..

I'm hoping that the warm water will help improve circulation; the salt will have a healing soothing effect to the affected skin..
