Re: ring around the nail bed
A 'dark ring' around the cuticle? What color is it exactly? Is it red and/or swollen? If so, it could be a paronychia infection of the nail fold. Visit my website below and look at the photographs. Most of them are in their worst stages, so read the esplannations as well.
