Help for peeling and splitting finger nails

CSS Member Posts: 2 New Member
Hi all, 

I have been on letrozole for the past 6 years and my finger nails have steadily worsened and now are severely ridged, split and peeling. Even when extremely short.  Based in Adelaide I am very keen for any suggestions on what to do and where to go for my unsightly finger nails. There are mixed messages regarding salon treatments and chemnsit products sadly.

Many thanks in advance

    Hi @CSS There is a thread here started by @Ccaza which suggests linseed oil. I have trialled this for a week now and am optimistic. @Ccaza says to brush your nails with the oil once to twice daily. I have been soaking my nails for five to ten minutes. I have filled a small container with the oil and dip my fingertips in it to soak. Early days for me but they appear more healthy. Will keep you updated.
