Nailbed InflammationI am 50 year old female. The nailbed of my 3 left hand fingers is swollen for several years now. The swelling has gone down over time, but lately index finger of the right hand also got affected. Can someone help me and prescribe a remedy. Is this because of some deficiency or some other reason. Will really appreciate any help someone can provide.

Whether it is painful or painless? Also talk about yourself like your mind, behavior, responsibilities, daily schedule etc. Any other physical problems, your thirst, sleep, bowel movements etc.

There is no pain. It is basically inflammation at the base of the nail area. I was hoping that it will go away by itself and possibly is because of some deficiency. 3 fingers on right hand have been affected for a long time and recently, the index finger of left hand also got affected, along with half of the right hand index finger. The nails are not blue or black but they are not smooth and it doesn't look good. Other than this nail problem issue, my front hair is thinning. Last year during the annual checkup, my Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D was low, liver enzymes AST & ALT were very high, even though I don't drink alcohol etc. Since then, I have been watching my diet and eating very carefully, as a result lost 20 pounds approx. Waiting on the results of the annual checkup lab results, hopefully will see a positive change.
Thirst is normal, I take several cups of hot water a day. I am not a sound sleeper. Some days are not good, especially lately I see that I am having more trouble falling asleep. Bowel movements are pretty regular and good, once every day in the morning.
I am very sensitive & introvert; think and analyze situations more than I should; I like to keep myself busy at work so as not to think too much. I walk and do yoga pranayam for exercise but not very regularly, especially lately.
I have not shown to a dermatologist, as I don't like taking western medicine.
Please let me know if there are any other questions. I will appreciate if you could suggest a remedy and possibly tell me the reason why this happens.
suna711 on 2016-12-28day 1 to day 3
Natrum Mur 30 twice a day.
day 4 to day 15
Silicea 30 in evening.
One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.
Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.
i can't comment on the pathology. We are interested to know patient's point of view as this gives us an understanding of patient's mental adaptation to her symptoms.
kadwa on 2016-12-29Thanks Dr Kadwa.
I have started as prescribed.
On Day 2 or 3, it seemed like the swelling is less, but since then, it has increased and today it is red & swollen and hurts a little when I press that area on right nails.
Should I continue Silicea as you prescribed for the remaining 10 days.
Appreciate the help.
suna711 on 2017-01-08I stopped taking Silicea. No change in symptoms.
I have developed head cold, main symptoms are frequent sneezing, watery eyes, no cough, no fever, sometimes runny nose. Can you recommend something which I can take. I tried Allium Cepa, Gelsemium, Aconite, Nux but nothing is working.
Thanks for the help.

kadwa on 2017-01-12Thanks a lot for the prompt response, Dr. Kadwa.
I was feeling very sick yesterday, but surprisingly I woke up feeling so much better today and am alright now. And, I don't have Belladonna 200 anyways.
Now I would need your help to start treatment of my nails. I would like you to prescribe a remedy instead of waiting a week. I am very stressed because of this.
I had read on the forum that applying Vicks vaporub on the nails could possibly help. So, I was using it for a few weeks, but didn't see much difference, then I posted this on the forum. So, I realized that it could possibly be a reason that on Day 2, it seemed like less swelling and since then it increased. I would preferably like to not wait anymore to start the treatment.
Please help and prescribe.
suna711 on 2017-01-13This thread continues beneath the following ad.Please take Natrum Mur 30 every alternate day in evening and see how that affects over 10 days. 5 doses over 10 days.

I completed taking the dose as prescribed.
The inflammation didn't go down but it seems to increase. Also, the area appears to be more red than earlier. One good thing I have noticed is that my hair quality looks better, not sure if medicine has to do anything with it.
Please suggest what to take.
Also, will it be possible for you to tell me potential remedies I may need for this treatment, so I can get them.
Thanks for your help.
