Fingernail Infections
An_248378 posted:
My boyfriend is having a problem getting a correct diagnosis for an infection around his fingernails. Every dermatologist has a different diagnosis from periungal warts to psoriasis. I would like to attach a few pictures in hopes that someone can have maybe a guess on what is causing his skin/nail problems, and if it is contagious. I'm scared to hold his hand and it is affecting our relationship.

Please Help!

Ask your derm for a small skin biopsy (and then ask him/ her to show you the results, in writing!). That will give you a 100% answer.

In my office, we always give our patients a copy of their biopsy results in writing (if the patient desires). It is your right

I hope that helps

Thank you!
