Woman's Hair Turns to Black Fingernails
Shanyna Isom has consulted every possible specialist, including a doctor in the Netherlands, but she still as no idea what is wrong with her.
The 28-year-old beautician and former University of Memphis law student has developed a condition so severe, fingernails grow from the hair follicles all over her body.
"Black scabs were coming out of her skin," said her mother, Kathy Gary. "The nails would grow so long and come out and regrow themselves. They are hard to touch and stick you."

Her nightmare began in 2009, when Isom was a student studying criminal justice. At the time, she suffered from an asthma attack and was given steroids, the station reports.
Soon thereafter, Isom developed an allergic reaction from the medication and noticed her legs turning black with bumps.

How awful. And it all started innocently enough with an asthma attack. very sad. I hope they find a way to treat this situation and give this woman her life back.
