Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Nail Problems

From your answers, it's hard to say just what is causing your nail trouble. Perhaps a cuticle or nail was injured in a way you do not recall, or it could be from overuse. For example, nails can become painful or even drop off after running a long distance, as with someone training for a marathon.

If your symptoms last more than a week or two or if they worsen, contact your doctor. Would you like to learn more about nail problems or are you ready to quit?

Yes, I'd like to learn more!

No, I'm all set, ready to quit, thanks.
