Cause Nails Turn Yellow And Slow Growth?
I have yellow nail syndrome. Characterized by yellow nails and slow growth. In addition, there are some nails that are separated from the skin under the nails … if my nails are removed, can they grow back …
Hello Salis Janatul,
It is necessary to distinguish between yellow nail syndrome (very rare cases) and fungal infections of the nails / onychomycosis (often). Yellow nail syndrome is a symptom of abnormal lymphatic flow (lymph). This syndrome is common in people aged> 50 years. Symptoms of yellow nail syndrome are:
Yellow nails and thickened Loss of the cuticle layer (nail protectors) Curved nails Slow or stopped nail growth Nails detached Yellow nail syndromes can increase the risk of nail infections, including fungal infections. Fungal infections of the nails (not necessarily yellow nail syndrome) are usually caused by poor foot hygiene, exchanging footwear with people suffering from foot fungus, rarely wearing footwear, rarely changing socks, foot injuries, and so on. Onychomycosis is characterized by symptoms:
Nails thickened but brittle, easily broken Nail color changes become dull - yellowish - black Changes in the shape of nails Part of the nail can be separated from the bottom or detached Treatment of nail fungus infections can use anti-fungal medication or rubbing. Sometimes an infected nail because it has been destroyed, must be removed, so that topical medication can seep into the bottom and around the nails and so that new (healthy) nails can grow. If the base of the nail is still good, then the nail can grow back. Nail growth takes a while, can be> 6 months.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
