Dying Nails

Hi, I hurt my thumb nail a year ago while I was washing the clothes. I noticed that the nail in my pinkie is also starting to look like dying. I started taking Vit K food supplements for a month now, but no change is happening in my nails. What's happening in my nails? Do we have a cure for this? Are this bacteria or am vitamin-defficient?

Hello Anon -

I am sorry to hear this is happening. Unfortunately this is difficult to diagnosis over the internet, please see your doctor to exam your nails and get a thorough health history to determine what's going on.

In the meantime, these resources may be helpful -

Hoping you find answers soon,
