Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and see that your question about Kobe hasn't been answered. If you still require assistance, I'd like to help if I can.

I'm sorry for this concern about him. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first if you don't mind:

1. Is more than one nail involved?

2. Do the nails seem to separate from the nail bed?

3. Does one happen to be active now so that you an take a picture of it? The following link walks you through the process:

Thanks, Deb
