Difference between onycholisis & mycosis
- Direct injury to the nail or mechanical injury of the surrounding tissue – cuticle
- Very tight and/or narrow footwear which puts extra pressure of the nails
- Very long nails or artificial nail extensions ( acrylic or gel)
- Excessive filling of the nail bed thins out the nail and forces its separation
- Constant exposure to chemicals and irritants – acrylic/gel manicure or pedicure, harsh household chemicals
- Change in in the color of nails ( yellow, grey, green, purple or blue )
- Change in the texture of the nail and thickening of the nail bed ( thick brittle nails which start to crumble when filed )
- Change in shape of the nail
- Bed odor coming from the nail
The treatment of onycholysis or mycosis can be said to be successful and completed only once the nail growth back to fully cover and attached to the nail bed.
