Does anyone else have this? Could it be because I clean by nails quite hard with a nail brush?
Any help appreciated! Thanks :
This sounds like what is happening with my index finger. The white part is separated from my nail bed (see post 'Another person w/separating nail). Marti has been a HUGE help. I've seen two dermatologists and, so far, there is no fungus. She also said it might be due to my 15 years of using a nail strengthener with formaldehyde. Not sure if you use anything w/formaldehyde in it like I used to, but I haven't been putting anything on my nails for the past two weeks and I am just hoping it will grow out.
Not much help for you, I'm sure. But like Marti said, go see a dermatologist.
I was prescribed something called Naftin Gel I use twice a day. Haven't noticed any change yet, but it's only been two weeks.
