Nails are unique structures formed of keratin, just like hair and the superficial skin layers. Fingernails protect the sensitive tips of the fingers from accidental trauma. Nails represent our general health. Normal texture of a nail is translucent, firm and shiny. But in some conditions, this texture may alter which can be due to some temporary external cause or some disease. Out of these altered conditions of the nails, the most common condition is Brittle nails.

Brittle nails occur for a variety of reasons. They may be a normal sign of aging or the result of polishing your nails too frequently. When the weather is cold, brittle nails may result from dryness. Weak nails also can be signs of a health issue, such as hypothyroidism or anemia. Dry, brittle nails that frequently crack or split have been linked to thyroid disease. Cracking or splitting combined with a yellowish hue is more likely due to a fungal infection.

Nail fungus, also called onychomycosis (on-i-ko-mi-KO-sis), tinea unguis or simply ringworm of the nails, is the most common nail disease and constitutes about half of all nail abnormalities.

An ingrown toenail happens when the corner or edge of your toenail curves and grows into the surrounding skin. This may cause pain,redness, and swelling. The condition is very common in both men and women. Your big toe is most likely to be affected. This and many more of the nail illnesses; even most of the surgical conditions, if treated with homoeopathic medicines in the initial stages, yield very good results. Homoeopathic medicines can very wellcontrol the pain, swelling or any other abnormal sensation in the nail and the surrounding tissues, take care of the dyscrasia and bring back health to the diseased nails.

Medicines like AntimCrud, Ruta, Silicea, Natrum Muriaticum and Hypericum are found to be useful in treating different nail diseases.

Mr. Sanjay T. Visited to us with ingrown nail in oct 2019. His right toenail was red, painful & extremely sensitive,due to this he was not able to use his normal footwear.He suffered from the same condition before also and twice he went under scalpel to get rid of this. This time he didn’t want to visit the surgeon again and came to us with the doubtful mind asking whether homoeopathy can cure his condition.

After taking his case history he was put on regular homoeopathic treatment for less than 6months and this is what we achieved!
