What is a Disappearing Nail Bed Syndrome?
Disappearing Nail Bed Syndrome (DNBS) is a shortened or narrowed nail bed that is the result of a long standing onycholysis and on average tends to be between 20% and 25% shorter than the opposite non affected nail.
- Other disorders that cause nail onycholysis such as psoriasis, lichen planus, and medications
- Regular overpicking
- Treating the ingrown nail
- ‘Taping’ the distal skin
- Using a ‘slither’ of cream that has up to a 40% urea content (*use as advised by your podiatrist)
- Wearing shoes that accommodate the the toe and toenail
- Treating dermatophytes (fungus)
- Avoiding overpicking
