When the pitting is uniformly distributed, giving the entire nail plate a roughened appearance, it is called trachyonychia (see section on trachyonychia).

If Candida is present, appropriate antifungal medications should be employed. Occasionally, a staphylococcal infection occurs under the onycholytic nail, at which time the drainage should be cultured and antibiotics given (Figure 34). Neglected subungual bacterial infection can result in osteomyelitis (Figure 35). If chronic unexplained onycholysis is present, the possibility of subungual squamous cell carcinoma should be considered and a biopsy performed (Figure 36).
