My son and daughter are having alot of problems with their fingernails. I initally took my daughter in a couple months ago for migraines that wouldnt stop. They told me they couldnt give her anything due to the fact she was only 7. Now she is still having migraines but, not as bad since they put her on premithozian and now her finger nails are falling off. I thought when the first one fell off that it was due to her bumping it or something come to find out that wasnt the case. Now she has another nail that is falling off from the base and its still attached to the fingertip. Shes complaining it hurts and it started bleeding yesterday. so i have been keeping bandaids on them so that she cant mess with it or it break off before its time. Now my son is 5 and his nails are peeling up from the base near the cuticle in layers. I have already called the doctor about this and we had taken him in over a month ago due to the fact that his skin was peeling off in sheets on his toes and balls of his feet and his finger tips. I am not sure what this is or how to take care of it but, im hoping that someone can help me. I dont think my kids have had hands feet and mouth this year at all. My son has had strep throat more than 4 times in the past year and i think he might have it agian. Thanks for all you help.View Thread
