Toe Nails Falling Off
My toe nail has been quite thick and yellowish for a while.  Yesterday it fell off.  All of my nails are very weak and can bend back with ease, but have never came off before.  I have psoriasis and thought this may be the cause, but i wasnt too sure so i asked my doctor who hardly even looked at it and just said " you have weak nails.  improve your diet'.  I took off all may nail polish to let my nails breath and the nail on the other big toe began to flake off.  is there any thing i can buy to stop them all falling off?  my doctor is not very helpful and wouldnt prescribe anything apart from a healthy diet.

thankyou

it's a normal type of fungus that takes sometimes 6 months of taking a pill to cure
alot of people have this- at least on one toe- usually the big toe- your toenail turns yellow, peels and cracks, nothing to worry about

Hello. cut nails back as much as can, add vivks vaporub twice daily. Can wrap in plastic if smell or you do not want it on shoes or socks (let feet breathe dailt though) an ingredient in rub kills the fungus. Cheap and good home remedy and works too!!! amethystgerry
