Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe, it may be the deficiency of the vitamin A, E,iron, or
proteins.Still it is advisable to access the problem with the advise of a physician
for diagnosis and treatment, to avoid further deterioration.
Take more green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts, and protein rich foods.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
