Treatment of the underlying disease, see there. Cut affected nails short, remove onycholytic parts of the nail plate if possible. Do not work for long periods in a damp environment; after damp work, dry the nail organ (if necessary with a hairdryer); protect nails during rough work by wearing cotton gloves. Pay attention to the occurrence of infections (mycotic, bacterial, viral) and if necessary treat them specifically; if necessary, take anti-infective prophylaxis (e.g. regular use of a liquid antimycotic).
