my healthy 10 yr old just showed me 2 fingers where the nail is peeling away at the cuticle. unlike other posts she has not had hand, foot mouth disease, her fingers and toes did however have some skin peeling a week ago. I put it off to her playing in a large mound of fresh dirt dug up from a rebuilding project in town. now Im wondering if there was something caustic in the dirt. The nail underneath looks healthy and there is no sign of injury or infection. Suggestions?
