Course: Natural Approach to Nail Care
Natural Approach to Nail Care
Chaitra Subramanyam

The nail is a unique keratinous appendage that can manifest various pathologies. Promising preliminary data has shown natural topicals such as horsetail or indigo naturalis extract help improve psoriatic nail symptomatology. Naturally derived topicals such as essential oils, sunflower oil, and natural resin appear to be promising in helping treat onychomycosis, but more large-scale studies must be done in order to prove their efficacy. This activity will review the evidence for the use of natural approaches for nail care.
