Customer Question
I have had repeated bouts...
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.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
