The Inside End Of The Nails Feels Dry And Peeling?
Hello, I want to ask. Finally, my left hand’s nails are dry on the inside edge of the nail, then it peels off afterwards. The edge of the skin on the tip of my nails is also like slack, or, a bit like elastic when pulled. Why do you think ??? thank you
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Some conditions can be related to your complaint, including:
1. Paronychia, is an infection of the toenail that can be caused by bacteria or fungi. Risk factors for experiencing this disease increase in someone who has a job in contact with water for a long time (washer, fishermen and milking), have the habit of biting nails and using artificial nails for a long time.
2. Irritant contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to reactions by substances that can irritate, such as nail polish and artificial nails.
3. Allergic contact dermatitis, which is inflammation of the skin due to allergic reactions by allergens such as hosiery chemicals.
You should immediately dry each time your hands or feet get wet. Avoid nail biting or cutting nails too short. Don't use nail polish or fake nails. You can also apply over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs, such as hydrocortisone or betamethasone. If the complaint gets worse or does not improve if you have avoided things that can trigger it, you should consult with a dermatologist. The doctor will prescribe antibiotics or antifungal ointments if needed. The doctor will also give it as a drink if needed.
Thus hopefully useful.
