Nails

Hi all,

I finished my chemo about 8 weeks ago but recently I have started loosing my nails.  My question is, should I put a plaster over my finger once the nail has came away or just leave it for the air to get too.  Not sure what to do.

Hi Cazza1234, I would suggest you don’t cover them with plasters but let  the air get to them and hopefully it won’t take long for them to grow.  Best wishes
