My wife has cut fingers, not really bad but few visible cuts.
(This started when we landed in US few years ago, we thought it is because
of weather or water)..
Doctor's say it is due to psoriasis.. and there is no real medicine to use
except to use moisturizers and humidifiers a lot.

We disclosed this at the time of Medical test to the doctor. But doctor didn't
mention any thing about it in the report.. (He just concentrating on PPD vaccinations etc.,)

Is there an issue with this kind of a case... Please share your experience. and what they look at the time of finger printing.


Thanks in advance.

they ask you to show your hands before they take you to the booth for FP. I am not sure how bad those cuts are but their machines are real sensitive so they might reschedule your appointment. But you can take a chance in case they accept it.

Hi Vramamu,

As long as the curved lines on top of each finger are visible or not damaged, your wife will be OK for finger printing. I think it is better you take your wife to your local office in advance and consult with the staff if the condition of your wife's hand requires rescheduling the FP appointment. I hope everything goes fine.
