    nails falling off
    omahall posted:
    I've read most of these from years back to 6 days ago..i would like to at least give my TIP on things to watch out for when a childs nails are falling off. my daughters toe nails and finger nails started falling off when she was in 6th grade (37 years old now) but just in case any of you are gardeners and had your kids help you out even if just to keep them busy.. I took erin to childrens hosp as it was freaking me out..they ran a blood test and found she was being POISONED by narcisscus bulbs...we were digging up buttercups as I wanted to plant something else there and my daughter was barefoot and had her feet and nails in the dirt and apparently she was scraping her nails across the bulbs..doc said, one bulb can drop a cow dead from the poison. I cant remember what they gave her to counteract that but that is what was happening to her. so IF your child did not have mouth hoof nail disorder then think back to see if your child or even adult was perhaps digging in the dirt ?
    that's my tip of the day! hope it can help someone out.
