My thumb nail a while ago turned yellow-brown colour and then from the bottom of the nail (neer the cuticle) part of it broke off! now that is happening to other nails too! I don't know what to do! can anybody help!?My nails are cracking and dying from the cuticle to the end of my nail!?
This is onychomycosis (fungal nail infection) It is highly contagious and that is why it has spread to the other nails. It's nothing to be embarrased about as it is really common.
Although you can buy remedies over the counter (Dr Gs and Curanail) these are not as effective as something that a doctor will prescribe you. They also take longer to work then prescription drugs. The best bet is to go and see your doctor.
Try not to worry as once the infection has cleared up (this may take a few weeks) Your nails will grow back healthy again.
Hope this helps xMy nails are cracking and dying from the cuticle to the end of my nail!?
i am a nail tech and i hate to say but i think you have a fungal or bacterial infection. you need to immediatly see your dr..or dermatologist so they can run tests to find out exactly. also you can use pure tea tree oil that can be found over the counter to treat the infection. this will take a lonfer time but will work eventually if the infection is nto to severe. also this needs to be take care of asap...bc this can spread into your blood stream and to all your fingers, toes your familys fingers /toes as well. this is very ddangerous and you need to take care of this immediatly!!
The cause for pimples are many and not only adolescence as
popularly believed. Chronic constipation is one major cause,
the food we eat plays a very important role. You will have
to cut down the fried food, chocolates, cheese and aerated
drinks. Eat a lot of fresh fruits and green vegetables with
a lot of water. Instead of washing the face with soap, use
orange peel powder. Dry Orange peels in the shade for 4-5
days. Powder finely and store. Wash your face with this 2-3
times a day. It clears the face and feels very refreshing.

Sounds odd, I know, but you may have a fungus in your nails that can only bre treated by a physician and meds. Try Sally Hanson, Diamond-Hard as Nails. If it does not work after a few weeks, then I would see the Dr. about a fungi.
