Psoriasis is a chronic disease of the immune system. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. Nail psoriasis often accompanies other forms of the disease because the nails are part of the skin. They grow from the nail root, which is under the cuticle, and psoriasis can form in the nail root.
If you have psoriasis, it’s important to check your fingernails and toenails for signs of nail psoriasis. Common signs include:
Buildup beneath your nail
Nail(s) separating from your finger or toe
White, yellow, or brown discoloration
Blood under your nail
Tiny dents in your nails
