Remember when everyone in the family except me had hand, foot and mouth disease? I've read that you can lose your nails after a bout of HFMD. I really thought Secora was going to go through this because she had a couple of blisters form up under the edge of her toenails. But aside from being a little bit ragged, her nails held out just fine.
Then at Easter, I noticed Sedona's fingernails looked weird. I couldn't figure out what was going on. It looked like the top layer of the nail was peeling off, but it was from the bottom up and the cuticle looked fine. I did some googling and it appears THIS is what they mean by losing nails after HFMD. I never would've guessed. She's not a complainer, so it's hard to know for sure, but the only time she told me they hurt was if she hit them or something like that. I'm assuming what was painful was having such a thin, non-protective nail, not the actual peeling.
Here's what it looked like (please ignore the "been digging a hole in the backyard" dirt under the nails!)
