What is Toe and Toenail Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a skin disorder where there is an overproduction of cells. Symptoms include red scaly patches on and around the toes and toenails of your feet.
Toenail Psoriasis is when the life span of the skin cells is "sped up" or accelerated. The condition changes the appearance of the toes and toenails. Skin cells build up quickly, become whiter in appearance, scaly and, sections flake off easily. Most people also experience a burning sensation and have itchy toes.
Other visible changes include:
- discoloring under the toenail plate
- pitting of the toenail
- lines going across the toenails
- thickening of the skin under the toenail
- loosening (onycholysis) of the toenail from the nail bed
- crumbling of the toenail
Toenail Psoriasis is not contagious. Causes are not certain, but are thought to be related to diet, stress, a low immune system and possibly involve a genetic factor.

FIR Socks Reduce Toenail Psoriasis:
The threads in Prolotex™ Socks are fused with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These safe waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your toes helping to restore the health of your toes and toenails by increasing the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your toes dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the overstressed areas.
