There is no particular reason for these type of diseases. In Ayurveda, these sort of non-reasonable is named as "Suthra Viyathi" and there are 96 of them in it. This is one of that 96. If you consult some Ayurvedic doctors, you will definitely get relief to this matter with some medicines to apply on your fingers. For any living things in the world once the removable part in the body intentionally gets removed automatically that part will grow faster and stronger than before, this applies to both hair or nail. So consult an Ayurvedic doctor your problem will be solved.

Thank you very much,

Best Regards
