We teach our kids basic hygiene, such as washing hands and brushing teeth, but we often neglect to teach them the importance of taking care of their nails. It’s not just about keeping them clean, however (although that’s a great start!); it’s also about preventing damage and helping you discover any underlying health concerns that may leave clues on the nails.
Read on for tips on helping your child develop healthy nail habits.
In terms of using tools, I don’t love nail brushes, which can’t be sterilized and can potentially harbor bacteria and other organisms. Cleaning under the nails with a tool like an orange stick can be effective, but make sure to be extra gentle - overly vigorous cleaning can cause the nail to separate from the nail bed (onycholysis).
