Peeling Nails
I have a problem with growing my nails. Everytime they get about 2mm long they start peeling.

I don't bite my nails and I take Caltrate Plus but still have the same problem. I use "Sally Hansen No More Peeling Nail Polish" and this is not helping neither.

Is there something I am lacking?

What can help me?

Dear Jenny
I think you should consult a Dermatologist because peeling nails may be due to a number of underlying conditions, such as fungal infections.
