a Dermatologist Phoebe Rich, MD, FAAD, clinical adjunct professor of dermatology at Oregon Health Science University, Portland, shared some tips to keep the nail healthy:

She said that nails can be kept healthy by filing with an emery board and not using them as a tool for opening pop cans.

Another method to keep the nails healthy was by trimming toenails regularly and keeping them short.

Rich said that by wearing shoes that fit properly the nails can be kept in good health.
