What can be done to treat lifting of a nail plate?

I have a great deal of lifting at my nail plate from having artificial nails for two years.

I use a clear nourishing topcoat from Avon that builds your nails to be stronger and healthier. I'd also recommend using folic acid or prenatal vitamins to get your nails to grow faster and stronger. Obviously I'd avoid any kind of false or fake nails for a while until your nails have strengthened.

Trim off as much of the nail as you possibly comfortably can. Wear rubber gloves when working in water. (washing dishes etc). Dry hands thoroughly. See doctor is needed.

One of the treatments for lifting of the nail plate would be medications depending on the cause. Some of the causes can be diseases like psoriasis or hyperthyroidism.

There are different causes for lifting, so your best bet would be to go to your doctor and have them figure out the specific cause.
