I used to bite the skin around my nails aggressively when I was angry or upset.. took out huge chunks and it gave me release. Now, I am so upset I cry everyday, when I look at the state of my fingers. On both my hands, big califlower-like warts have grew right in at the nail of the fingers. I don't even know if it's a "wart" but I've been told it was. They are so sore. They depress me. They embarrass me. I went to the doctors and they can't do anything about them, in case of disfigurement near the nail, but they can take up to 5 years to heal. I am so upset about them, especially if I have job interviews etc in the future. I can't even go with my friends and get my nails done like them.. because there is always big ugly scars beside my fingers and I end up crying. They look like this.. http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e379/sharonosbournerocks/DSC01587.jpg Please help.. any way to get rid of them etc?
