How to take care fingernails during chemo?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Nothing special: Nails are affected in some patients but the effects are quite varied. Most often it is a change in color or a slowed growth. Rarely nails can fall off due to slowed or shut down of their growth. But these effects are temporary and the new nails will grow back. So you just have to put up with this problem like you do with hair loss. Certainly ladies can use nail polish to cover up the color changes.
