Nails Growing Bent Downwards

Patient

Q: I am 27 and for about 15 years I have had itching all over my body and due to excessive scratching over the years I believe my nails grow bent downward from the nail bed. When I touch my nails I can feel the nail bed itself is uneven (wavy).Can you recommend any treatment for them to grow straight.

My itching has stopped which was due to imbalanced hormones causing irregular periods. I take Diane 35 tablets to get regular periods.
