Hello john ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The problem of breaking of nails can be due to cold and dry weather;iron deficiency;hypothyroid;genetic;Raynaud's phenomena;etc.Please get investigated to find the reason in your case and even see if it is genetic by asking your family members.Once the cause is found you get treated for it.Till then for relief you can apply a regular cosmetic moisturizer and you will feel better.

Have you ever got your blood sugar checked, because nail problems occur due to many reasons. It may be due to diabetes or low levels of calcium. You may get your blood sugar checked and in the mean time you may take Calc-Flour 6x- 4 tablets, three times aday.
