Nail Problems

Disorders specifically affecting the nails are few; more often, discolouration or deformity is the result of injury, or of nutritional, respiratory, or heart disorders.

Deformed nails have a variety of causes, including iron deficiency (nails become spoon-shaped), respiratory or heart problems .Psoriasis (nails become pitted), injury and infection (nails develop horizontal ridges), or simply old age (nails develop vertical ridges, possibly due to malabsorption of Vitamins A, B complex and C, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and essential fatty acids).

Self-help Preventive measures include keeping nails short, wearing gloves for gardening and rubber gloves if hands are repeatedly immersed in water, trimming toenails straight across to prevent them ingrowing, and wearing shoes which do not press on toenails.

Discoloured nails can be telltales of a variety of conditions, including Anaemia (nails very pale), liver problems (nails whitish) bacterial endocarditis (nails have dark flecks in them which look like splinters), and fungi infections (nails turn whitish and soft or crumbly); nails also turn purplish or black when hit (see sub-ungual haematoma below) or put under gentle but constant pressure for any length of time. White spots on nails are often a sign of zinc or Vitamin A deficiency.

Fungal infections turn the nails white and crumbly, causing ridging and thickening afterwards. Orthodox medicine prescribes antifungal drugs or ointments. However, the homeopathic remedies in Self Help section should be tried first.
