HI. I have read yours and Elaina's messages back and forth about fingernail problems. I too had artificial nails for about 8 mos. This past May I had them taken off. Some skin underneath some of my nails had already started coming loose and I could eventually pull it out. After that my nail was loose from the bed at least 3/4 up from the tip. I spoke to several nail techs about this and they said the nails would grow out. It has been 5 mos. and the nails are growing but they are still loose from the bed. It is white under my nail and red at the edges of where the nail connects to the bed. Occasionally it will get green under there if I don't treat them with Dr. Scholl's Fungi solution. It seems to have spread to other fingernails also. I went to my family doctor yesterday with a sinus infection and showed him my nails also. He mentioned pseudomonias and decided to put me on Tequin for 10 days but said if this didn't work, I would have to go on something else much stronger. This is scary and ugly. I have to wear polish on them every day to hide these ugly nails. My mother-in-law mentioned today about that tea tree oil. What do you think? HELP!!!
