Onycholysis

Onycholysis is a fungal nail infection in which nail plate is separated from the nail bed. Fungal infection and the skin disease psoriasis can cause onycholysis. Nails with onycholysis usually are smooth, firm, and without inflammatory reaction. It is not a disease of the nail matrix, but nail discoloration may appear underneath the nail as a result of secondary infection. Onycholysis is the separation of the nail plate from the nail bed. Onycholysis only goes away after new nail has replaced the affected area. Some nail problems are difficult to cure and may affect the nail appearance permanently.
