Hi, well you might be dealing with skin eczema. You can check on info center section of this site and find many skin related issues and treatments. It might help you deal with your condition. For now, i would suggest you apply some hand cream to your hands just to keep them moist until you find more permanent solution for your problem. Anyhow, check out the info center i am sure you will find better answers there. here's one topic but there are many others.

It sounds like a nail fungus. I think it's unusual to have it in finger nails because it needs a moist environment to take hold. Toe nails are very common. I have had it in my toe nails for about 35 years. I have never found a doctor who was willing to prescribe the most common "cure" Lamisil, because they all say if it does work, it will just come back again anyway. And it's very expensive.

There are many over the counter items that claim to work, she might try one of those.
