I have had repeated bouts of paronychia. Now the base of two

Customer Question

I have had repeated bouts of paronychia. Now the base of two of my nails are black rimmed and no one has been able to tell me what causes this or suggest a resolution to the problem. Would this be cutaneous candidiasis? Because of my age and certain medications I now take. I would be happy to find a resolution (if there is one), that does not necessistate oral medication, if possible.
