Bad Nail Growth

9041884?1366476909
I have this problem with my nail, right hand middle finger, it was infected by fungus (That’s what Doctor said) maybe 6 years back, it was itchy and pus all over the finger, swollen with swollen nailbed and nail growing very rough or rigid mass over the bed with pale yellow. Treated for fungal infection with local ointment and antibiotics, and by maybe 1year, most of the symptoms went away, with healthy finger.

But still the nail grows rigid over the nailbed with discoloration, mix of natural and yellow, once its half way it would detach from the nailbed, and nailbed is a bit swollen then other normal nails. Some mild pain like feeling, when pressure is applied, also yellow pus comes out if applied pressure over the yellow area quite rarely. Could easily torn the nail off the bed with mild pain in some area, but grows back with same above symptoms, and have been this way for more than 5 years.

Seen dermatologists, they told it will grow normal just give it time, others diagnosed for fungus, by taking part of the nail, but turned negative. How could I treat this?

Hi,
How are you? Fungal nail infection is usually cured by the growth of new, non-infected nails.  However, nails grow slowly and even if treatment is successful, it may take up to a year for a new clear nail to grow. There are some cases of recurrences and sometimes fungal nail infections may be hard to treat. If your symptoms persist, it is recommended that you inform your doctor or dermatologist for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
