Needs...: It sounds like you might be having a dermatitis or in other words an inflammation of the skin which could be reacting to an external agent, lack of moisture, or any physical condition that could trigger it.

Peeling (top skin layer), VERY itchy skin on palms & fingers of both hands. Have used OTC creams with salicylic acid, benedryl, etc...did not work.

Contact /irritant: Both contact allergy (from a contact allergen) and an irritant (solvent, excessive hand washing) can cause itchy hand dermatitis. The answer is avoidance of the offending agent (may need to see allergist or dermatologist to help you identify the agent). Salicylic acid will cause peeling on anyone and Benadryl will do nothing for the rash. No improvement until after avoidance. ...Read more

So do I!: So do I on my index finger! This is completely benign (not a health problem at all) and has nothing to do with your previous biting habits. Think of it like a freckle or a discolored hair. It is made the same way by the nail cells right at the quick. They put dark pigment (melanin) into their growing nail and it extends as the nail grows. Think of it as just making you more unique and special! ...Read more

Could be: If it on only one or two nails that argues for a local damage to the nail or nail plate underneath the nail. If it is in the nail proper it will just grow forward and out and you will cut it off. If it was systemic -eI. E. You ingested something- I would expect all of the nails to be affected. See a good dermatologist if you're worried. ...Read more
