Treatment of nail psoriasis: best practice recommendations from the Medical Board of the National Psoriasis Foundation. AND RELEVANCE: Treatment of nail psoriasis poses a clinical challenge. However, the availability of biologic medications has reduced the challenge considerably. The management of nail psoriasis is reviewed in detail separately. When psoriasis is severe and widespread, treatment can be very challenging. Psoriasis is a disease that affects the skin, including the nails, sometimes the hair, and the joints, and the main problem with the skin is it is growing too quickly.
Nails that are damaged by fungal nail infections or nail psoriasis can be challenging to treat, since the infection is embedded within the nail. Therefore, it is important to start treatment for damaged nails early and continue until the infected nail has been completely replaced by new nail growth, a process that, for a big toenail, can take as long as a year.
