Our expert says:
onycholysis or loose nails can be caused by many diseases. The most common are infections of the nails (bacterial or fungal) iron deficiency anemia, thyroid hormone disorders, injuries. If all the nails are doing this, it is probably due to an internal cause and her doctor may need to draw bloods to check thyroid, iron levels, sugar levels etc. Cortisone won't cause this - although some other medications like Tetracycline antibiotics and Ciprobay type antibiotics can cause it.
