Nail is an important part of body, which plays crucial role in the beauty of female. A pink and lustrous nail is always equated with good health. Paronychia is one of the clinical conditions. It is a type of nail bed infection. It induces severe ugliness to hands due to chronic recurrent infection, which is generally bacterial or fungal in nature. A single case study showing Kunakha condition, which had resistant to therapy in contemporary science, induces encouraging results after the administration of external and palliative treatment (Shaman Chiktsa). Administration of Ayurveda treatment (external and internal) consecutively for 20 days had yielded good results in clinical symptoms as well as significant improvement in cosmetic view. The Shothahara, Rakta Prasadaka, and Strotoshodhaka properties of this remedy successfully subside the pathological features and improve the normal appearance of nail. Combined therapy, which is planned on the basis of basic principles of Ayurveda, conquers over the condition, which becomes resistance to contemporary established treatment.
