Finger nails peeling
I`ve always had a problem with peeling finger nails but the last couple of weeks it has been peeling into the fleshy part of the nail on all fingers, any clue as to why this is happening?
This could have a range of causes from vitamin deficiency to an underlying systemic disease. Because of the severity (involvement of all fingers, not just one or two), a visit with the physician is warranted.
