Fingernails pulling away from nail bed

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernails pulling away from nail bed


Avatar m tn The skin on my hands is pulling away from my fingernails and no matter how much lotion I put on them, they look and feel so dry that when I straighten my fingers, I can feel the skin pulling on my index finger. It occurred to me yesterday that with the obvious swellings on my finger joints, the skin probably IS too tight! I'm 56, in good shape, athletic, but do have chronic Hepatitis C, which is where I usually post.

1194973 tn?1385507504 I've never used a nursing cover (I used to use a blanket sometimes, but aside from not caring anymore this kid gets HOT and even without a blanket I'll have sweat pouring from the side she was on. I would die with a blanket in the summer time) but people always used to think she was asleep when she was in fact nursing. Now DH laughs, because she'll be half asleep when I latch her on and somehow with her eyes closed the hand just snakes its way up.
Avatar n tn It has gotten so painful that I, too, cannot straighten out my thumb as to pulling the nail from the nail bed......I asked my nail tech if she had used any new products or changed brands, she had not. I am planning on removing the artificial nails and letting them breath ~ which I do occasionally anyway. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Ranges are very flawed for a number of reasons, and many find that FT4 has to be around midrange and FT3 upper half to upper third of range before all symptoms go away Hair loss is often one of the last to go away because your body thinks that your brain and heart are more important (and they are) and takes care of its vital systems first. Do you have other hypo symptoms? What meds are you currently taking? Do you know if you have Hashi's?
Avatar f tn In a human being, it would be the equivalent of removing the tip of each finger, including the nail, at that first joint behind the nail. Imagine how it would be getting used to doing everything without your fingernails and an inch of each finger, and that's what it's like for a declawed cat to readjust to doing things. Some do amazingly well. They never seem to suffer any ill effects from the procedure.
Avatar n tn I'm surprised there are so many with the same condition as me. I've had it since I was a child but have progressed now to pulling whole leathery scales from my scalp that I've caused due to the irritation. It itches, then I dig into it. Sometimes, I would take dental sticks to loosen the thick skin. Now I have balding spots. As I am afraid of taking psych meds to control this, I have to consciously tell myself not to do it. Now I'm wearing 3 tracks of weave in my crown area.
429155 tn?1205676864 Just after Christmas 07 my 40mg 2x a day started, then I caught a virus, and was very ill, and it just would not go away, nausea, aches and pains all over, I blamed it all on this virus, never really suspecting the real culprit, yes you know don't you, it was because I had cut down on the oxycontin, and my body was craving it, this went on for 7 weeks, until one day it dawned on me what it was, by this time I had become tired all the time, getting up early and doing nothing, then backwards an
Avatar n tn BUGGED OUT, I BELIEVE YOU! It has been suggested to me by a psychiatrist that I have psychosis because I'm plagued by bugs crawling & biting me but when I brush them away, I don't see anything! I have had this problem off & on for many years! However, after reading your post, I began checking my fingernails & hands when I scratch or brush the bugs away & discovered that there are actually bugs!
Avatar n tn I'm a guy so I can't cover up my face with make up because I have found out from experience that any girl can tell right away. I have had this problem since I was in 8th grade. Once i pick my face once, i cant leave the mirror until my face is damaged everywhere where i thought pus would come out. I always try to set myself goals on not picking my face. Some how I can never go longer than 3 days without going on a picking rampage.
Avatar n tn I hope you and the others see this. I found a discussion on the Dr-to-patient Neuro forum on this very topic. The headaches are also called "epicrania fascia" headaches meaning arising from pain from the outside of the head and the conective tissue. If that's what they are they can be treated often successfully with Botox injections locally. Great news! here is the link to the Neuro's answer:
537731 tn?1268268886 I'm so scared that by the time im like 30 or so, my eyes will be all droopy or something from pulling them down all the time. . PLEASE, someone. .
Avatar m tn Stuff to keep my stupid *** away from mirrors. I was thinking of even in my personal bathroom removing the big one and just having a small one to use. I put a clock in there too so i can see when i came in, and also set my g-shoch watch timer for 15 minutes, since brushing teeth, quick shave, and some other personal grooming shouldnt take much longer for a man, unless theu are taking a shower too.
Avatar f tn That just so happens to be the same smell that happens under your fingernails when you get finger nail fungus. Anyone who wears tips or acrylics knows what smell I am talking about. Anyway, the cure for this is using a number of antifungal remedies altogether while keeping the scalp as dry as possible. You can buy anti-fungal/medicated shampoos at CVS that contain zinc or sulfides which fight fungus and yeasts......take acidopholis pills......
Avatar n tn To counter the problem, I keep my hands moisturised, avoid damaging my hands (eg do not hammer nails), and keep those things away from my hands that make EK worse. These are some of the things I do and that work for me, and maybe for others. Wear light cotton gloves when doing light work with hands at home/work (am doing so now as typing can affect the finger ends), and wear heavy gloves over them when needing to do hard work (gardening, lifting furniture, etc).
Avatar n tn I don't know what else to do,it's driving me crazy and i am so itchy I'm gonna dive my eyes out!! I live way up north,quite a ways away from specialty doctors, can anyone give me a solution or any help!!!
Avatar f tn It either starts as a pimple- you pop it and it gets raw and the skin around it seems to wear away and never heal. (That particular mechanism can be from a vitamin deficiency esp. Vit. C) and the topical mess being too strong. Understand that once you've broken the skin retin-a taozorac benzoyl peroxide ect won't help it heal-- only irritate it. You need antibiotic like clyndamycin erythromycin neospoirn or Bactroban to keep it uninfected so it will heal.
Avatar n tn They say it's just your mind waking up before your body. It's hereditary. There is a name for it, but I always forget what its called. If you ask Sylvia Brown the psychic, she says its your spirit walking around and hasn't come back to your body yet. Either way, just relax when its happening, your body will wake up, it just takes an extra minute.
Avatar n tn (knuckles, between knuckles, next to the nail or away, etc) Is it like below the skin, above the skin? What medication have you used in the past 6 months? Do you have a chronic disease that you are aware of? (Ulcerative Colitis, Chrons Disease, Atopic dermatitis, Psoriasis, etc) What about Herpes? (have ever had it on your lips) Did you have flu like symptoms, with the occurrence of your problem? Do you have a pet?
Avatar m tn I believe, we contracted this from a brand new comforter...which of course, I didn't wash and just put it right on my bed! There are ALOT of complaints about OLD NAVY stores, just happens to be where I bought alot of clothes from last year for spring and summer...Please let me know if anyone has seen this post or? anything about this bug...We have had it over a year now, we get rid of it for up to a month, then I believe the eggs just brings it right back again!
472570 tn?1274689487 The itch was excrutiating and when I scratched my head they got under my fingernails. My fingers looked like sausages from all the bites and I took a look in the mirror and my eyes and lips were horribly swollen with red splotches on my face. I couldnt see any of these biters, even with that many. The itch lasts several minutes and the swelling was gone by morning when they departed. I've had to close up my home to keep them out after spraying bug spray and washing the curtains.
Avatar f tn Mix it to the strength you can take. Remember to keep using the clove oil under your nails and around the nail bed to kill the eggs. Spray the bed sheet with the Eradicator( or product containing pyrethrum) to kill the eggs before removing them from the bed. Shaking the sheet will only launch the egg into the air. I recommend spraying the entire house, pay attention especially things like doorknobs, keyboards and things you usually touch.
Avatar n tn Due to the body's static charge, if you touch the outside of the bag with your hand, the stuck flies will be repelled from the inside walls and can fly away if the mouth of the bag is still open. Now if the folded sheet is viewed against a bright light, you can see as tiny specks young flies as well as some larve. You can have a better view of these intruders using a lens or a microscope.
Avatar n tn It's a vibration much like a pager which cycles on and off in about 2 second increments for a couple of minutes, goes away, then comes back again. It seems to come from inside my right quad about halfway between my knee and hip. I cannot feel the vibration with my hand and it is not a muscle twitch. I started a really stressful job about 3 months ago and have developed this and a strange lower-eyelid twitch in my left eye, so I assume they're both stress related.
Avatar m tn I had read about the possibility of it being bed bugs (from reading sites like this online) so I tore my bedroom apart looking for signs of an infestation, and saw NOTHING. My mattress is brand new, the apartment I live in is also pretty close to brand new. Never the less, not a thing was found, searched mattress, box spring, walls near bed, everything. Ruled out bed bugs. The only other thing I've seen it could be is Restless Leg Syndrome.
Avatar n tn on september 16th I posted a message about the pains i was experiencing which were random sharp quick and stabbing pains in any part of my body for a very short time. mostly occured when going to bed when i wasnt doing something interested. I read a post from bshore about how u never notice the pains when ur doing something u enjoy. well, i decided to think positively and when the pains came i decided to take my mind off it as well and say and believe' its ok, i'll be fine' .
288415 tn?1231634102 a couple months ago i went to a doctor about dizziness and painless sinus pressure and congestion (which i still have problems with, so that was pretty much a waste of time) he looked in my ears and noticed a blistery looking spot where the itch was coming from. he gave me antibiotic ear drops and they temporarily relieved the itch but now its back. i think that was his solution to get me out of his office though haha. you shouldve seen him squirm when i mentioned the dizziness.
Avatar f tn Maybe you will have to go to a progressive teaching center for dentistry. I am not a doc basher, either. I just desire to stay away from them should I be fortunate enough to recover from this!! Oh--I had an eye exam today, and the optometrist said he sees no sign of pathology as would usually be present with ms. He told me he had all of the metal fillings and work removed from his mouth years ago.
Avatar n tn He told me to use vanicream ( a prescription lotion that does not have dyes or perfumes) to try to help with any dry skin since I have some itching at all times. After I tan in a tanning bed the itching becomes unbearable and for the most art goes away after 7 days. It may be the meds because they are known to cause sensitivity but usually people burn easily or get rashes and I dont (I only burned that one day, but didnt itch). I was on the meds for over year before this started.
