Common Nail Problems


Everyone aims to have gorgeous nails, but brittle nails can spoil the beauty. Weak and brittle nails that can easily become cracked or broken are a common problem affecting both men and women.


Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a very common problem. Symptoms include inflammation, swelling, yellowing, thickening or crumbling of the nail. It is usually not painful, unless the infection spreads.


Psoriasis along with skin and scalp can also affect the fingernails and toenails, causing pitting, thickening, and irregular contour of the nail. If psoriasis of the nails is severe and is not treated, it can lead to functional and social problems.


Dry nails are pre disposing to brittle nails! If dry nails are taken care of, brittle nail problem can be definitely prevented.


Infection in the nail can be caused by both fungus and bacteria. It may lead to inflammation and pus formation along with occasional pain.


Many of us suffer from the problem of yellow/discoloured nails. It occurs among both men and women, and can be a source of embarrassment.


Onychocryptosis, or what we commonly known as ingrown toenail, is a painful nail condition in which, the nail grows cutting one or both sides of the nail bed. This nail disease is generally found in those people, who wear shoes for a long time on the daily basis. In this condition, a sharp or pointed nail digs inside the nail bed, causing pain and inflammation.
