... Go see you dr. - preferably a holistic one - and get some bloodwork done. I started having the same problem a year or so ago and had bloodwork showing deficiency of iron, vit d, mag and was hypothyroid. I don't know which of these causes what you have, but one of them causes it. (4 replies)

... On both of my thumbs I have horizontal ridges.They showed up at first just one ridge that was smooth, than more kept coming. Now both my thumb nails have these ridges and there deep and rough. ... (4 replies)

... Once the nail bed is damaged, it usually turns into scar tissue just like your regular skin if it is cut or torn. The nail plate grows over the scar tissue and takes on its shape. Sar tissue is permanent, so your nail will always grow in the manner it does right now. My son damaged both his thumb nails at the matrix and they grow in with a pronounced ridge in that area -...

... I began to notice that my thumbnails were growing in funny. At the base of the nail, I noticed that there were many vertical ridges. My fingernails look similar but no where near as noticable. They look normal to me. At any rate, my one thumbnail got a single raised vertical ridge which evenually cracked. ... (1 replies)

... of my big toenails, I have horizontal indentations. My other toenails are pretty tiny, so I haven't seen anything on them. Haven't noticed anything weird with my fingernails either. ... (2 replies)
... My 16 month old daughter's big toenails on both feet are separating at the base. I noticed last week that there was a ridge across the bottom of both big toenails and now, as they are growing out, I see they are actually separating below the ridge away from the toe. ... (1 replies)
... couple of weeks or so. The white portion of my nail is very large making up over a third of the nail on the ones affected. One thumbnail has a severe horizontal ridge similar to beau's lines. ... (4 replies)
... Ok, here's the deal. About 7 years ago I developed a problem with my fingernails, though I really don't recall the time frame for the breakout. There is some pitting (from needle-head, to sharpened pencil tip in size, I'd say) as well as a general, but not too severe, roughness to them (with the appearance of small, contained, white "flake-ish" patches that are just on the...

... Toenails grow much slower than fingernails, so yoru doctor is right that it can take up to (and sometimes longer) than a year for the nail to completely replace itself. You can use a 240 grit white block buffer to buff the raised portion of the nail plate to give it a better appearance, and to blend it with the new emerging nail plate. Just be sure not to remove too many... (1 replies)
... The "part that makes them grow" is much deeper and longer than you might think. Toenails grow MUCH slower than fingernails, so give it a little more time. The only way they wouldn't grow any more is if you were to have the root completely removed by surgery. If they bled, you may have nicked the nail bed when you cut them off. In that case, they would still grow, but may... (2 replies)
... I have two fingernails that have a noticable ridge running from base to tip. That in itself is no big problem, but as soon as the nail grows a little it splits along this ridge often into the skin. ... (4 replies)
