    Unhappy Skin peeling near nails. What's going on?

    Hello,

    My girl's skin near her finger is peeling off and I am getting scared.
    The doctor gave some creme to apply, but it is not helping.
    Can anyone look at it and tell me what this could be, please?

    Below are the images

    Hi abi!
    Your condition seems like fungal infection of nail and nail folds. Carrying out simple KOH test may be helpful to confirm the diagnosis. Using antifungal medication can be helpful.

    Hi Abi! You can try to rinse your hands in warm water for at least 10 minutes or so each day. It will make the skin supple and the dry skin to fall off.

    Add lemon juice and honey to the warm water before rinsing your hands. Once your hands are rinsed, dry your hands and apply vitamin E oil, olive oil or a good moisturizer on them to maintain the level of moisture.

    I hope this helps!

    It could be fungal infection.
