PODIATRIST, DR. GARY  PICHNEY STATES, "IF YOU NOTICE PITTED TOENAILS, IT COULD BE BE PSORIASIS. IF YOU FIND TINY HOLES, GROOVES. OR RIDGES IN YOUR TOENAILS, YOU MAY HAVE NAIL PSORIASIS.  THOUGH MOST PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCE NAIL PSORIASIS ALSO HAVE SKIN PSORIASIS (AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE THAT MAKES SKIN PATCHY AND IRRITATED), 5 PERCENT OF PEOPLE WITH NAIL PSORIASIS AREN'T AFFECTED ELSEWHERE.  IF YOU'VE NEVER BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH PSORIASIS, BUT YOUR TOENAILS HAVE LITTLE PITS IN THEM, YOU SHOULD GET THEM CHECKED OUT.  OTHER SYMPTOMS INCLUDE WHITE PATCHES AND HORIZONTAL LINES ACROSS THE NAILS.  TO TREAT PSORIASIS, YOUR DOCTOR MAY PRESCRIBE TOPICAL CREAMS OR STEROIDS TO BE INJECTED UNDER THE NAIL."

AT MY FOOT CLINIC WE DO SEE SOME PATIENTS WITH PSORIASIS OF THE NAILS.  THIS IS A DIFFICULT CONDITION TO TREAT AS IT IS AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE AND MANY TIMES YOU CAN ONLY DEAL WITH THE COSMETICS THROUGH NAIL CARE. WE REALLY DON'T RECOMMEND STEROID INJECTIONS AND TOPICAL CREAMS MAY PROVIDE SOME RELIEF.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE, FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS AND STAFF CONSULTANT.
