My dermatologist recommeded Elon Nail Conditioner for everyday nail health. It worked well, but I forgot about it and it sat around for a few years. The other day I used it. It had yellowed greatly but the insructions said to stir any yellow film on top of the cream back in. About 3 days later, my nails starting hurting and the skin around them starting peeling! The skin under my nails thickened and hardened. I have ezcema already so I thought that I had developed a reaction to some gel polish I had used the week prior. I cut off the nails and have been treating them with ciclopirox, my ezcema medication. Now, my nails are raised off the nailbed and are almost like rolling upwards! The skin surrounding the nails is peeling, very rugged and sharp and catches on everything I touch. The skin underneath my nails is much improved but still painful. Okay, after all that explanation, my question is this: Does anyone think I got an infection from the Elon, seeing as it was old, or could I be having an allergic reaction to the gel polish? Has anyone ever experienced the symptoms I am? Thanks for any advice.
