| | My toenails are not healthy
For some reason my toenails are brittle and scratch easy for lack of medical terminology.That means when I cut my toenails I have to be very very very careful not to scratch my toenail.
When having a shower and coming out of the shower it starts to peel by the base or edges and takes a long time to heel and some times does not heel and I just have to live with it for new toenail to grow .
And if I touch it or bump it not hard it scratches easy and peels easy.You have to treat your toenails as if it is a glass ornament.
It slow to heel and very sensitive to water or touch.About 6 months ago I bumped one of my toenails very hard and it was black ,blue and bruised with blood !! It still is but is taking long time grow out .
I thought it takes 12 months to grow a new toenail? It is ony one third the way !! And this was 6 months ago!!
My toenails are slow to heel and grow. And get scratched easy and cannot put water on it or have a shower.
This was not the case 6 years ago my toenails was much stronger and could take much more of a beating.
I hear you can take alot about a persons health by looking at their toenails .
