674626 tn?1226040001 It is important that you wash your hands after touching an infected nail. Nail fungus can spread from nail to nail. There are different types of fungus that affect the different parts of the body. These fungus love to thrive in warm and moist places. With regards to your face, diagnosis of a fungal infection is through skin scrapings observed under the microscope. Have this evaluated further for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of fungal infection of the finger as well as nail. In onychomycosis(nail fungal infection) nail plate can have a thickened, yellow, or cloudy appearance. The nails can become rough and crumbly, or can separate from the nail bed. Topical and oral antifungals are needed which are available under prescription. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist and get a KOH examination of the nail and skin specimen done to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Fungus is unlikely, because for unknown reasons fungus affects only one hand at a time, in most cases. Eczema, psoriasis, and skin problems associated with arthritic conditions are all on the possible list. Diagnosis depends on appearance and the presence or absence of other symptoms in the skin or elsewhere. I recommend setting up an appointment for a second opinion and inquiring about a cancellation list to get seen sooner.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks like fungal nail infection or trauma skin. An infection of nail fungus occurs when fungi infect one or more of your nails. Nail fungus can be difficult to treat, and repeated infections are common. Over-the-counter antifungal nail creams and ointments are available, but they aren't very effective. You need to get a KOH examination and fungal culture of the nail scrapings done and then oral antifungals prescribed.
569705 tn?1217021092 gave me pamphlets on hand eczema and the paper said that some eczema is associated with a fungus that also affects the soles of your feet. When I intially went to the dr my feet where already infected. The nails on my hands are also discolored and grow in what I can only describe has "ripples" and crumble off. I have been seeing this dr since January and am not happy with my progress.
Avatar f tn If it is a fungus that you have on your nails, you can purchase a special nail varnish type of medication specifically to treat nail fungus from the pharmacy, but this is very expensive and it can take a long time for it to heal. The first option you should do, is to make an appointment to see your doctor, who will be able to identify what it is that you do have.
Avatar f tn I am battling for 15 years with fungus in my thumb nail. It oftens turns into abscess and causes terrible pain. Already had an operation in which my nail was lifted and the nailbed cleaned. I then lost the complete nail and a new nail was formed but still with the same problem. What kind of a specialist should I contact to see to this. I have been using antibiotics for menths but the problem would not go away.
Avatar n tn My big toe (the entire nail) has a yellowish color to it. I've had this for about one month now. My third toe is not yellow however it is thicker than normal, it's been this way for about a month and 1/2. I experience no pain however it's frustrating to not know what caused this. What could possibly cause this when all my other toe nails are perfectly normal? Could it be my diet? I've been using an anti-bacterial gel for the nails but they remain the same.
1002512 tn?1265442179 My nails are normal in colour so I do not think it is a fungus... These ridges are not growing out.. prior to all of this.. my toe nails were beautiful!!
Avatar n tn It is difficult to reach and the infection may also recur. It is important that you wash your hands after touching an infected nail because nail fungus can spread from nail to nail. Have this evaluated further for proper management. Direct clinical examination is important in determining the diagnosis. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I have them removed and new ones put back on about 4 times a year. Recently I developed a green nail fungus under 3 of my nails on two different hands. I have been on lamisil tabs for two months and I'm not sure if it's helping. I cannot take my nails off because I sell jewelry and the company I work for is very strict about how your nails look . What can I do???
Avatar f tn and Ketoconazole), as well as an anti-fungal nail polish (Ciclopriox), and also a nail film (Umecta). My nails are still deteriorating (see pictures, taken today...5 months of this). I am fairly certain this began from a bag of pistachios which must have been coated with a dust containing the fungus. Is anyone else suffering this? Does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance for any help you can send!
Avatar m tn 'I noticed that the sides of her hands were extremely red' She didn't say 'the palms' of her hands. As far as liver disease and stigmata of decompenstated cirrhosis...'palmar erythema' results in exaggerations of normal speckled mottling of the palm, due to altered sex hormone metabolism. Palmar erythema affects mainly the fleshy sides of the palms while sparing the central palm. It is also seen in pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis, hyperthyroidism, and blood malignancies.
Avatar m tn There is a liquid they can give you to take internally for that. And soaking feet in water with tea will kill nail fungus and athlets foot. The tannic acid kills it. Just thought I would share.
Avatar f tn I moisturize and keep my feet clean and dry, and understand I can probably never rid the foot of the fungus. Is there anything I can do or take in terms of supplements or external application to at least minimize the problem. I take yoga and pilates and sometimes refrain from doing so when I am embarrassed about this problem. I am a 67 year old female but age is not really a factor since this has been a recurring situation since my 30's. Thanks for any advice you might have.
Avatar n tn My left small finger nail looks as if I have a fungus. I have no problems with the backs of my hands and the only other problem I have is at the top of my rear end crack which is extremely red and hard with hard vertical wrinkles, the same ones that appear to be forming on my hands and fingers. It is extremely itchy and skin does sluff off. I moisturize my hands often daily but they are still extremely dry.
Avatar n tn what helped me was coticsteroid rib it in for 10-15 minutes-apply moisture crean-aveeno over sleep with a shopping bag over your hands. It is uncomfortable and keeps you hands moist. I was told in order for it to go away I had to establish a mositure management for my hands. I am still working on other solutions. I still have the blisters but not as many.
Avatar m tn It's not just on your penis unfortunately. It's in your hands and probably in other areas like your face, nise chin, hands and feet like athletes foot but as a fungus lotrimin won't kill it. . It could have been there chilling, acting like acne for years. Also you have to change your diet man. stop eating breads, pastas, cow milk, beer, sodas, or anything that will convert to sugar. This is most definitely the devil in disguise. Also get into a sauna if you have access.
140622 tn?1190102529 drug free..don't share any personal items, etc. I was floored. I did obtain a fungus last fall at a nail salon. It is the only thing I can think of. If I could have gotten a fungus that means their instruments were not sanitized properly and I also could have gotten a viral infection. I wish I knew about vaccinations....although there is a lot of controversy there too...but I would have done it.
Avatar m tn infections are appearing in different parts of my fingers and 2 of my fingernails got shrinked with yellow line in the base are of the nail. Attached some photos. I appreciate your help. Many thanks.

Avatar n tn This is affecting each finger on both hands. The skin begins to peel around the nail and then the top of the finger and half way down its base. Why is this happening all of a sudden? Soon as one finger peels, another one begins and it is repeated. I have read briefly about keratolysis exfoliativa is this the same thing?
Avatar n tn i have an itchy bumps on my both hands. it took a month ago and i am so depress thinking of what kind of fungus is this. i thought that it is kind of allergy, because my uncle said that to me. but i notice that it doesn't disappeared so i try to see in the internet if what kind of ill is this. so i figured out that there's so many persons who also suffered like me. most of your comments and suggestions said that the cure for this is cold/wet water, or an ointment.
Avatar n tn And I may have the same or a similar skin problem involving the hands, fingers, and feet bumps. Ever since I was 9 or 10 I would get these little tiny red bumps on my hands and feet, first it would only be like 1 or 2 bumps, then they would start to itch and then they would spread. I get these on both hands and feet. I am now 19 and I still have them to this day, right now even. Its gotten worse over the years, and I ONLY get them in the summer and they go away in the fall.
Avatar n tn I was only 25...He perscribed Lamisil. A pill specifically for the nail fungus. I took for four months and my nails were cured. The suprise was my burning itching hands/feet went away too. I was cured for years before it started coming back. I believe it is this internal imbalance that your Chinese friends are explaining. Specifically a systemic yeast infection that has exploded in a internal fungal outbreak.
Avatar n tn I have for the past 10 years or so have been getting a strange condition on my hands (worst on hands), on my feet, and a bit on my elbows. I have been told it is eczema, but I look at other pics of this and it is not tiny bumps that blister with fluid. They start with red circular but irregular circles, the middle is sometimes slightly lighter in color where you see a circle. It is not too raised only slightly.
Avatar f tn Hi! So I woke up this morning and while I was washing my hands I realized I had brown stains on them (the palm side). So I tried washing them off but it wouldn't go away. I have never experienced something like this before and both hands (palm side) hurts to touch. They are more on my left hand but I do have some on my right hand as well. If you could msg me back with some type of answer to this it would be gratefully appreciated. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.
