Nail ridges

You should see a dermatologist. Two neurologists have told me this has nothing to do with my CIDP. A dermatologist told me it’s psoriasis of the nails. I have it on five fingernails. It can be treated with steroid injections under the nails, but that doesn’t always work. A light treatment is sometimes used. Or you can have all your affected nails removed surgically and wait a year for new ones to grow in. I have started using a new Kerasol product that causes the damaged, brittle material to gradually peel off and make room for new growth. I haven’t used it long so I don’t know the ultimate result, but the bad stuff is coming off in strips (no pain) and I see new growth at the bottom of each nail.

@sparshall. Thanks for that idea. I hope that the nails keep growing strong and stable. Today she showed me how the new nail was replacing the old broken one. Put me on your list for information on the Kerasol product. Be content and at ease. Chris
