Our 'Topic of the Month' discussion for May is 'Taking care of Nails'.
Quite a few changes can occur with the fingernails and toenails in people who have lupus. They may develop hard lines or ridges on the surface of their nails; the edges of the nails may lift off the underlying skin at the end of the nails; indentations or pits may occur as well as areas of unusual dark or reddish discolouration.
We want to hear if you have any tips for looking after your nails. Have you made a certain change in your diet to improve them? Have you found that treatment has helped or made them worse? Have you needed to see a doctor about your nails?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences (good and bad) and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at
