Nail bed and Discoloration

Nail bed is slowly peeling and has a yellow-orangeish discoloration?

Hello,
It can be due to onycholysis. Onycholysis is characterized by a spontaneous separation of the nail plate. It can be due to dermatological causes, systemic causes, neoplastic diseases and biologic causes.

Try avoiding trauma to the nail, contact with contact irritants and moisture and keep your nail shirt. Topical antifungals and steroids may be needed. Severe cases may need oral antifungals and steroid injections.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
