Hello!
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service. Nails that are scaly and tend to be damaged can be caused by onychomycosis nail fungus, tinea unguinum nail psoriasis or irritation.
Nail fungus (onychomycosis) will cause the nails to appear white or yellowish scaly, easily brittle, peeled off, and nails become damaged. Onychomycosis is often caused by candida fungus. Tinea unguinum is also a nail fungus, but the cause of the fungus in addition to the type of Candida. While the symptoms of nail psoriasis are also similar to nail fungus, and cause indentations in nail tissue.
To distinguish whether the cause is fungus or not, it is highly recommended to consult a dermatologist directly. Investigations such as nail scrapings and mold cultures can be done to rule out the possibility of nail fungus.
Treatment of nail fungus or nail psoriasis requires a longer period of time. Antifungal treatment can be given if the cause is known due to fungus from investigations. At least it takes up to 3 months to treat nail fungus. Corticosteroid creams can also be used to reduce scales on nail abnormalities due to nail psoriasis.
To help reduce and prevent more widespread symptoms, you should avoid your nails from chemicals in cleaning products to avoid irritation of the nails and should not pull out / rip the nail tissue because it will increase the risk of infection.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
