How do I manage my nail psoriasis on a daily basis?

Psoriasis, including nail psoriasis, can have a significant impact on your life, but there are ways you can manage the disease from day to day. It is important to follow doctors' advice regarding treatment such as medication, therapy, behavioral changes, and surgery. Sunlight therapy, using moisturizer, bathing daily, and avoiding triggers may also help relieve some of the symptoms that can cause severe discomfort. Since nail psoriasis is associated with body psoriasis in about 50 percent of cases, coping with the disease can be difficult.
