This problem has been going for about 5 years for me. All my other fingernails are normal except for my thumbs.Both thumbs have a strip going down the middle that is being eaten away by something. I say eaten because I know I'm not doing anything with them that would explain it by wearing them out. http://i.imgur.com/PIuLScQ.jpgThis is a photo of my left thumb, it's the worse of the two. I've asked my doctor about it, I got prescribed some anti-fungal cream, that didn't really do anything for the problem except maybe slow down the process.it's gotten to the point with my left thumb that if any pressure is applied to the deepest eaten away area, which happens to be down at the root of the nail right now, it's sensitive. Not quite painful, but there isn't much nail left there.Is there some kind of test I can do to see if it's a fungus?Is there some kind of way that I can get my nail to grow back healthily? Thank youReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
