Hello listya,


Thank you for the question.

Healthy nails will be firmly attached to the cushion. If your nails don't stick well enough to almost come off, or in the medical realm is called onikolisis, then the possible causes are:

Injury to the nails, for example due to pinched, depressed, bumped, or tripped
Contact with certain chemicals, for example nail polish, nail polish remover, or certain cleaning fluids
Nail infection or surrounding skin, for example due to fungus or bacteria
Poor nutrition, especially iron, magnesium, calcium, folic acid
Psoriasis (an autoimmune disorder that makes the skin regenerate quickly, abnormally, and excessively, so that it accumulates, making the skin thickening, scaling, peeling, and brittle)
Others, for example drug side effects, thyroid gland abnormalities, immune disorders, and so on

Try to see yourself directly to a doctor or a skin specialist, right? Physical examination or further tests, such as biopsy or blood tests, can be done by doctors to be able to give you the right treatment. For now, all you need to do is:

Eat a variety of nutritious foods, rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, and folic acid, to nourish the nails and the matrix more optimally.
Drink more
Avoid activities that risk damaging your nails
Take care of personal hygiene, including the area of ​​the hands, feet, and nails
Not taking drugs carelessly
Not also carelessly using nail polish, nail polish remover
Use gloves when in contact with cleaning fluids, such as when washing dishes, cleaning the bathroom

Hope this helps ...
