The hands have to endure a great deal of irritating situations and substances each day. The skin peeling around nails and formation of dry skin in and around the fingernails in the shape of rough fingertips or scraggly cuticles can become a bigger issue if harmful bacteria enter through the cracked skin. This is why it is important to care for this skin area.
5 Causes and Their Corresponding Treatments of Skin Peeling Around NailsSkin peeling around nails can result from a number of reasons. It can either be due to infection, frequent washing of hands without using a good moisturizer, or because of a serious internal disease. It is difficult to diagnose what the problem is without the knowledge of the medical history or knowing the detailed account of the skin situation. The following are 5 probable causes and their corresponding treatments.
Allergic ReactionsVarious types of allergens can cause serious skin reaction. Exposure to nail polish, use of too much soapy water, being allergic to nickel and latex or irritation caused by solvents and detergents can all cause peeling fingernails. Treatments: It is best to stay away from all the potential allergens for a period of 3 to 4 weeks and see if anything improves. Bad Habit : A nervous habit can be the source of the ill condition of your cuticles and nails. Picking or biting at cuticles and nails can cause damage to them and might even result in a skin infection. Damaged or wounded skin might also be caused if the hangnails are ripped off instead of being clipped gently at the bottom using a sterile tool. Treatments: An easy solution for this problem is to stop picking or biting at the cuticles or nails. It may take you many days to get rid of bad habits, please be patient.
Lack of MineralsPeople believe that vitamin or calcium deficiency might be the reason for the peeling skin around nails. Actually, the deficiency of these minerals only causes dryness of skin directly, which is most likely to flake and then peel off in the end. Treatments: It is important to ensure the intake of a balanced diet that offers you the right amount of dietary fiber, healthy fats, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins and protein.
Skin DiseasesSkin peeling around nails can be caused by skin diseases too. Psoriasis, eczema and dyshidrosis are among the common diseases which can cause this problem.

- Psoriasis: A common skin disease which targets the life cycle of the skin cells. Patients of psoriasis suffer from rapid buildup of cells on the surface of their skin, leading to the formation of red patches and thick silvery scales.
- Dyshidrosis: Dyshidrosis, also known as pympholyx or dyshidrotic, is a rare skin problem in which fluid filled blisters of small size on the sides of the fingers and palms of the hand, which can also lead to skin peeling around nails.
InfectionA low level chronic infection which is usually caused by moisture of yeast can lead to the peeling of skin around the cuticle. Treatments: For this condition, you will have to take antibiotic. The symptoms and signs of the infection would improve after 3 days of treatment. If the infection worsens instead of getting better and a fever develops, it is important to call your doctor immediately.
