"yellow nails"

About: Newham General Hospital

(as the patient),

about 14 years ago i noticed spots inside my nails. i went to see the doctor who refered me to a dermatologist who said it was to do with having scarred lungs and there was no cure.

as time went on my nails began to harden and get very thick and yellow. if i caught the end of any nail they would rip right off the whole nail. u cant imagine the pain. that has happened to 8 of my 10 fingers and another nail would be growing before they come off so when i lost a nail another nail was allready there. i have wore gloves for some time now, they are a real eye sore ugly.

is there something anyone can do for me? thank you.
