Conditions with symptom: 'nail psoriasis'
Hi, I have a fungal nail infection on my big toe nails, I believe this to be nail psoriasis? They are just really flaky and fall off but its odd as its just my big toes! Does curanail work? Pls any advice would be appreciated! As I am mortified at the moment about it! Thanks! Anna
Hi I damaged my middle right finger nail a couple of months ago by shutting the car door on it. The damage to the skin at the top of the nail which healed quickly and I expected to lose the nail. It's slowly grown out but there is still some nail at the tip. I was concerned about whether my nail will regrow or will I be left with a lumpy nail bed for the rest of my life? If so, is there anything I can do about it? Many thanks Kate
Hi..My big toe nail is yellow, stands away from the skin & behind the nail it just flakes! I went to my Dr who said it was a nail infection & there was nothing you can do to treat it?? When asked what I could do he said "put nail varnish on it to cover it up" I tried curanail but that did nothing! Its been like this for over a year now..Please can anybody help? Thank you
Can I do nail art on my nails which have psoriasis. I hope they don't get worse and cause further damage
Hello, I have had fungal nail infection in my big toe for a few years now and have tried putting a cream that the doctor gave me on it every day for 3 months but instead of getting better it gradually lifted away from the nail bed and has now fallen off completely! I have cleaned the nail bed up and am now continuing with the cream...but my worry is that my nail will not grow back??? Has this happened to anyone else? did your nail grow back?
hey, i used to pick my toe nails alot, i had an infection which i had puss filled blisters next to my nail. I went to the doctors and i got cream. That went away but my toe nail next to my big nail (on both feet) is discoloured and brittal. It doesnt grow out, it grows up. iv tried leaving it, iv tried the cream they give me. I dont think its fungal nail infection as its only them two toes. Iv had it for around 5-6years. My toe nail next to my big toe on my right foot came off last night (well half if it) it just lifted off, didnt hurt or anything. what is wrong with my toe nails? thanks.
Hi, My right thumb nail split down the middle and peeled away, a pulpy matter was underneath,its just a nail bed now and a nail wont grow,its really unsightly. My left thumb nail keeps splitting down the middle now and I have to glue it together, all my finger nails are ridged too. The doctor says there is nothing I can do !! Can you giver me some advice please?
Hi there, i have an unusual nail that keeps growing and splitting in the middle of the nail and i could pick at it to which i did once but that made it worse as i could feel more sensitivity underneath. I don't understand why i have one nail that does this. it grows lumpy like little mountains/ridges is the only way to explain it across the nail. It's my thumb nail and on my right hand side. Rest of my nails are fine apart form this one. I did shut it in a door when i was a teenager but that was like 15 years ago. It did grow funny after that happened but now its splitting. I was on medication for depression but that was over a year ago i stopped taking them and now this happens. My diet hasn't changed so i don't know what to do.
I have been treating my big toe nail for fungus it has now crumbled away and the nail bed is also discoloured can anyone please tell me if the nail will grow back and without the infection thank you
I cant feel the tips of my fingers and around the nails,and I can rip tips of my nail off without them bleeding and any pain.The base under the nail seems to grow over the nail it self and looks very dry. Have tried hand and nail cream for that.The sides of the nails seem to curl up instead of downwards to the skin and look discoloured and out of shape.I have taken clippings to the doctors and the result came back with no fungal infection. Can you suggest what it can be? Many thanks Lloyd
