    Coastal Cholla cactus glochids skin injury going on 3 years...

    July 16, 2015 I put all of my body weight onto an 8" Coastal Cholla cactus plant with my right palm. After removing the visible spines, I then proceeded to wash my hands like a surgeon, grinding the invisible golchids into both hands, front and back, as well as my forearms. I also touched my legs and both are still not well. This process of the dermatitis started about 6 months after touching the plant. I have been to several Dermatologists, only to be misdiagnosed and deemed possible picker....

    Fingernails Peeling and not growing

    My fingernails started peeling about 3 years ago, then appeared as though to stop. Then about a year and a half ago the peeling came back and the nails even flake. Not to mention that it doesn't even look like my nails grow much since this started. I have been to a dermatologist and was told that I have Onychoschizia and that there is nothing to cure it. The dermatologist told me to use the CeraVe cream and the the peeling would get better for awhile then come back and so on. The only way that....

    Index fingernail not attached

    I'm not sure what I've done to my nail, but I noticed about two weeks ago that my nail really hurt and was growing strange. It has detached from the left side of my finger and the white part of the nail is showing on the side and goes all the way to where the nail starts growing from the cuticle. I'm not sure how to explain it very well but it looks and feel strange. Is there a way to get it to grow normally again? Thank you!

    Back and chest acne

    I am 23 and have never suffered from bad acne ever before. The past 2 months I have become inflamed with small red bumps covering my back, chest and most recently my face. It seems to be getting progressively worse and I have not introduced anything new to my daily routine. What else could be the cause of this major breakout/ could it be something other than acne?

    Why do my nails grow "incorrectly"?

    So, I am 30 years old now and I can remember having this problem with my nails all the way back when I was 22-23. It didn't start out as drastic as this though, so they have gotten progressively....more irregular? I've just never seen anyone else with nails like mine. It's a little embarrassing having these weird irregular growing nails. I thought maybe it was an issue with how I started out cutting them when I was younger, so I did try growing them out, but the part of the nail at the....

    Red Circles on Lower Legs

    I started developing these red circles on my calves (I inserted a photo) as you will see they are pretty much perfect circles, some as big as a quarter and some as small as a freckle. They don't itch, they don't hurt & some are hardly even raised. If I was blind I'd probably never know they were there. I'm can't find any information online and I'm concerned it may have something to do with my vascular system, like maybe it's blood pooling up under my skin? I'm....

    Ingrown nail procedure. Fixing the nail?

    Many years ago, I had both big toes operated on for ingrown nails. However, the nail bed never grew back and now both toes have narrow nails and appear deformed. Is there a fix for this? I have no issues stemming from the deformity but obviously it is something that can cause some self-concious moments.

    Dark spots under toenail

    Out of nowhere, I saw these spots under my toenail about 2 months ago. I don't remember stubbing my toe, but even if I did, I think these spots would be gone by now if they were signs of bruising. They do not hurt to the touch and there's no sensitivity. I've read that they could be signs of endocarditis (a heart infection), diabetes, or melanoma. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
