Nail separates from nail bed
- Nails may separate from the nail bed because of injury or infection.
- The detached nail may turn white with a yellow or greenish tint and may be tender or painful.
- In some cases, a separated nail may be linked to psoriasis or other illnesses.
Having any of these changes does not mean you have an underlying health condition. However, if you are concerned about your nails, play it safe and call your doctor.
