Brief Answer:
Nail bed and skin over it is hard to treat

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I had gone through the details. The treatment appears to be standard. I could hear that skin over the nail bed is hard to get back to the original color than the other areas. It does not mean it would not be cured it will but takes a larger that means two to three times more than the other areas.

Do not worry if you are in a hurry for cosmetic purposes you can see a Dermatosurgeon for melanocyte transfer or graft. Camouflaging is first preferred to other procedures. The details can be known better by Dermatosurgeon.

I had few such patients and heard from them that it was suggested by Dermatosurgeon.

Brief Answer:
Visit a Dermatosurgeon in your area

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Dermatosurgeon is experienced to do the melanocyte transfer to the area where they implant the cells and let them grow in the area to get back the pigment.

You should consult one. Are you in Bangalore? You can consult, Dr XXXXXXX Ramachander / Dr Venkataramana M.

You can fix with their appointment using 'Fix An Appointment' service available for free.
