Hello and thank ou for asking HCM,
I will try to help you by giving some advice how to keep your fingernails healthy.
Keep your fingernails dry and clean, file your fingernails regularly, use moisturizer. Do not abuse your fingernails, bite your fingernails or pick at your cuticles, pull off hangnails. You can also use vitamin D and calcium.
