Our expert says:
I suggest that you get a second opinion from a dermatologist. It is possible that it is a chronic yeast infection of the nails and nailbed. This is very difficult and expensive to treat but it is curable. A clear diagnosis has to be made, in order for the correct treatment to be given. It is essential to send nail clippings away for culture to confirm if it is a yeast infection or not. This culture can take up to three to four weeks for the results.
