You may be having a fungal nail infection. It can be treated with antifungals for 3 to 6 months. If it is due to some other cause treatment will vary. Biotin supplements help in having shiny thick nails with good strength. However if the underlying problem is not treated there is no use of taking supplements. Please visit a dermatologist near you to get yourself diagnosed and treated. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
