I have been taking all those vitamins even before I had this nail problem. So I guess that is not the answer. I do not get maniure Is. Have tried gel nail, nail wrap which only last 10 days. Nail problem has been close to 2 years now.
I really doubt that my insurance will over this medication as it seems to be more cosmetic than something I would really need for an illness.
It is quite painful and goes down into the quick.

Tried the gel nail which did not work as it came off within 2 weeks. Then tried the nail wrap which also lasted only 2 weeks. My split actually goes down into the quick. Have had this for almost 2 years.

I too have the same issue. My thumb has being splitting down the middle for over 10 years. I have beautiful natural nails. I am not sure how this happened but I am thinking it was "tramatized" by either a hammer or putting acrylic over my nails. I stopped getting that done years ago but the problem persists. I am going to try a homemade harder (from store), mixed with Biotin liquid softgels with vitamin D added. I read that the condition is called Onychoschizia. I have done all of the common sense things with no results. I have even as a dermatologist with no luck. I too thought about getting the nail removed and starting all over. I will try my solution for a couple of weeks and respond back to the forum.

I use a dab of SuperGlue on the split in the nail of my middle finger. It splits only about 1/4" but catches on everything. This nail was surgically removed after an accidental hit with a hammer. It grew back and was perfect until a couple of years ago when the split occurred. Still looking for a CURE, not a temporary fix.

I too have a split nail right ring finger. An injury during a sheep sheering gone wrong Lol. The sheep turned out fine my hand took the hit. Those sheep sure are hard to hold and sheers sure are sharp! It's been about 6 years now and my nail splits if it grows out more than an 1/16 of an inch. It's always snagging on everything and of course generally just being a pain in the butt. I agree there is not much to do but keep it filed but am greatful for the many suggestions here about vitamins and oils! Good luck to all Jane.
