Hello

Take a close luck at your nails,especially fingernails and you could possibly detect some abnormalities,things you maybe have since birth or for many years now and you never expected that it could be a sign of (in most cases when doctors didn`t find something) detected (minor) illness or some nutrient deficiencies.

But nails sometimes tell something about your constitution,metabolism and nutrition.

I have nail abnormalities since early childhood and I wanted to ask if someone here maybe has the same symptoms:

-rapid growing nails,irregular pattern
-thickened fingers and different looking nails on one hand
-dark pinkish nail colour
-absence of lunulae,except in thumbs and one forefinger
-often there are this skin things growing out under the nails which sometimes hurts and is very annerving,so the skin around is often reddish.

I have no major health problems like liver or kidney things and nail fungus has also been excluded (also nails don`t look like fungus)

Any idea or somebody has the same or another nail condition?
