Anyone experiencing nail bed problems and losing fingernails.
My experience is I started getting artificial nails in October or December of 2017. I've always had beautiful nails, but I got gel nails and the last lady that removed them, damaged my nails. I started hitting my fingers or nails, not on purpose, just weird to explain. I had been complaining many many months before about my toenails looking green. Doctors kept saying just a toe fungus. Of course I say it's related to having pseudomonas.
In April 2018, again I hit my finger and fingernail very hard, I thought I broke it, but it was a sprain. Nail broken underneath, nail bed. Continued to keep it bandaged for months. Then it and another 'hit' nail completely came off.
I finally saw a dermatologist a few weeks ago. First, she said I have clubbing, which me and my pulmonary doctor disagree on. I presently have one full nail about to completely fall off and two nails that are black....fungus.
In 2017, bouts of pneumonia caused by pseudomonas. The meds I was given twice levofloxin. It C A N nail bed and fingernail issues and so can bronchietasis.
Just wondering are you having the same experience. What was done? The dermatologist original sent two prescriptions to a online pharmacy she uses. 1 was $240 and the other over $2000....yes, no mistake $2000. My insurance refused that. I hope to hear people experiencing the same.
