    I smashed my thumb over a month ago and the nail is starting to come off. The problem is the back of the nail is all the off the nail bed, but there is a small portion in the front that still attached to the bed. Since the smashed nail is away from the root, how will the front of the nail come all the...

Nothing hurts or causes any discomfort, though.   Moderator comment:I have deleted the links to the images as they went to a site unsuitable for inclusion...

  • Nail ridges - horizontal

    Hi I’ve noticed over the last few months that I’ve got horizontal ridges on my toenails. I used to have smooth nails but now I have vertical ridges which at 37 I put down to age. I’ve got waves of horizontal ones also which I’m concerned about. I’m trying to add a photo so people can see what I mean...

  • Hair, skin, nail, and body issues.

    My hair and skin have become unusually dry. Nothing I do seems to work. My nails have become brittle and flaky. Random lines going up them. I eat healthy and I’m still unable to lose weight. My stomach always feels bloated, and my hands and ankles are swollen.

  • Seriously worried this is Terry Nails (toes only)

    So, following up on another thread, i was told recently that i had a fatty liver (and enlarged spleen), so i have now become terrified of having cirrhosis (especially since i am waiting on the orders for a follow up blood test). In reading about the symptoms, i ran across Terry nails, which made me look...

  • Nail Fungus - at the end of my tether

    I've had nail fungus since 2013. It started on my big toe and was minor with a change in the texture of the nail and white discolouration. I went to the docs to get it checked out and they took nail scrapings. The test for nail fungus was negative. The nail fungus then spread to a second toenail,...

  • Fingernail Fungus

    I have fingernail fungus and I know it can't really be cured but I am worried about it spreading to other nails etc. The only information I can seem to find is for toe nail fungus. Does anyone have any suggestions re preventative treatment for other nails. Thanks

  • Nail problem. Not growing. Mucus.

    Hi, My sister has been having issues with one of her nails for a couple of months. She has been to GP, dermatologist, cosmetologist, surgeon and podologist.

  • Ingrown toenail removal left my nails looking terrible

    When I was a child, I had two ingrown toenails removed (one from each big toe). I believe the edges of the nail bed were removed because the nail on each big toe is not full and has never been since the surgery 20 year ago. This leaves me feeling self concious about my feet. Has anyone else experienced...
