Hi Doc
I have a mild case of psoriasis, actually only affecting my nails which are
hardened, thickened, and rather unsightly. Everytime they seem to grow out
its seems as if its clearing up but then just starts pitting again from the
bottom up. Is there any way to make it better?
And what is the procedure and costs for your nails replaced with artificial
nails as i heard this can be done?

Juandre, I don’t think you can actually replace the nails with artificial nails, but you can have them covered with a gel like Bio-Sculpture™. Your local beautician will be able to help you further. Good luck.
