A TikToker has recalled the upsetting moment a nail technician shamed her for having Psoriasis while getting her nails done.
The woman recalled the horrendous experience in a recent post on the video-sharing platform.
Sharing a video of the skin condition on her hands, the social media user penned: "When you go to the nail salon and the worker cringes at your skin and keeps saying how lucky she is to have nice skin".
After posting about the horrific experience, many showed their support for the TikToker and shared their shock about how unprofessional the nail technician was.
One penned: "I'm really sorry that happened to you, it's super unprofessional for them to act that way."
"I hope you didn't tip them," another wrote. "I'm very sorry, this is not normal behaviour".
A fellow user added: "I'm so sorry that's so horrible of them sending lots of love".
Another social media user shared their own upsetting experience at a nail salon and wrote: "My psoriasis has flared and it's now on my nails and literally every nail tech is cringing".
Meanwhile, a fellow Psoriasis sufferer thanked her for documenting the skin condition online as it gave them "comfort".
They shared: "I've never seen someone with the same thing as me this is honestly so comforting, I thought I was broken".
Psoriasis affects thousands of men and women across the UK as well as several famous faces including Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevingne.
The condition causes plaques of red skin, often covered with silver-colored scales to flare-up on the skin, which usually appear on the elbows, knees, scalp, and neck.
However, the skin condition, which is considered an autoimmune disorder, can crop up anywhere on the body and can also affect the health of nails.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for it but topical treatments, such as creams and ointments, can help reduce itchiness and the appearance of the flaky patches while an anti-inflammatory diet is recommended.
In severe cases of Psoriasis sometimes a GP will recommend Phototherapy, which involves exposing your skin to certain types of ultraviolet light, or oral medicines.
