Fingernails are breaking too easily

Patient: I’m taking biotin capsules 5000 mcg each day with my vitamins.

 

 

Symptoms: Fingernails are flimsy

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Since you have issues with your fing ernails, it indicates vitamin deficiency.So you can take Biotin 5000 mcg with your normal vitamin supplements.I will advise a course of Tab. Neurobion Forte once daily which has a good combination of all essential vitamins and micro-nutrients. You can take Neurobion Forte along with the biotin capsules for a month.Fingernails can also be feeble secondary to fungal infection. Kindly get them examined by your physician. If a fungal infection is confirmed, you can apply Clotrimazole ointment 3 times daily for a week.Hope this was helpful,Regards
