Full text not available from this repository.
The in vivo pH of healthy finger and toenail plates, measured using a skin pH metre, was 5.1 (+/-0.6) and 5.4 (+/-0.8) respectively. Toenail pH was higher than that of fingernail, while the subject's gender and age, hand/foot side (right or left) had no influence on pH. Handwashing increased nailplate pH, although the increase was not sustained with time. Tape stripping of the nail plate showed a slightly lower pH inside the nail plate compared to its surface.
