Treating onycholysis is quite simple but it can be a slow process. Exactly which treatment will be used depends on what caused onycholysis to happen. When the nail separates from the nail bed it is permanent because there is no way that you can reconnect your toenail or fingernail back to the skin, or nail bed. You just have to wait for a new one to grow back in to take the detached nails place. Usually the detached portion of your nail is clipped off. You should continue to clip the detached part until you can see the re-growth of the new nail.

If the cause is from an infection you need to make sure that the infection cured and gone before your new nail can start to grow back. To cure the infection you may have to take antibiotics. Sometimes even when you have a new nail you may still see deformation or permanent marks on the new nail. For a new nail to completely re-grow and replace the detached nail can take up to six months. For toenails it will take twice as long.
If the cause is hyperthyroidism, treating this disease with medication will let your nails to re-grow naturally and normally.
For psoriasis, treatments given by mouth may help to improve the health of your nails.
If it is a fungal nail infection this may be able to be treated with prescription medications but this medication can have side effects ad is expensive.
Make sure that you are not shocking your nails by tapping the nails on the computer keys, or some hard surface, especially if you have long nails.
When you know what is causing your case of onycholysis make sure that you eliminate the cause because if you do not it will not do any good to treat them because the cause will still exist. If at all possible keep your nails as short as you can and try to clip them each week. When your nail starts to detach keep it out of the water as much as possible and when you do cleaning or have to put your hands in water wear gloves. You should also avoid using harsh chemicals. Most of the time you can treat onycholysis at home but if home treatments do not work you should see your physician for treatment.

Hi @rainbow0

There many thing that causes Nail Lifting. For long time solution, first, we have to find the cause and take treatment for the same.

Kindly find the below article:-


Cut nails to a comfortable length so that they will be less likely to endure repeated trauma from tapping in everyday use.
Wear rubber gloves to avoid repetitive immersion in water.
Nails expand after they are exposed to moisture and then shrink while drying, a cycle that can make them brittle.
Keeping your nails dry also will help prevent fungal infections.
Avoid frequent exposure to harsh chemicals, such as nail polish remover.

Treatment :
Because the portion of nail that has lifted away from its bed may catch on edges when you move abruptly, it is a good idea to trim the nail close to the place where it separates from the nail bed. A physician can help you do this.

Treatment for hyperthyroidism and iron deficiency can permit the nails to regrow normally.
Some treatments for psoriasis that are given by mouth may improve nail health.
Oral prescription medicines are available to treat fungal nail infections. However, they have potential side effects, can be costly and are not always covered by insurance.

As far as I know Onycholysis is the separation of a fingernail or toenail from its pink nail bed and treatment for onycholysis depends on the cause of the problem. See your doctor for a definitive diagnosis. When he prescribes some drugs, try to find a promo code for it on . Keep healthy!m
