    Fingernails not growing.

    I have a condition with my nails and so far it has baffled all my doctors and have not gotten any closer to finding a cause or solution. It started about 7 Months ago. They have stopped growing and are getting horizontal lines through them. I have seen a Thyroid , Heart & Lung, Dermatologist and my regular Doctor and none of them have seen anything like this. All my blood work has come back clear. I am a Male, age 43 ex smoker (quit 5 years ago) Thank you.

    Fingernails and toenails growing slower on one side of body

    Not sure if this is the correct board to post this, but it's the closest match I could find. I just noticed this past week that both my fingernails and toenails are growing much slower on only the left side of my body. This has never happened before. I went to clip my toenails on the weekend and noticed that my left foot didn't even need it. It struck me as very bizarre, but I just shrugged it off. Today, I decided to clip my fingernails and noticed that my left hand didn't need it. What....

    My fingernail wont reattach to the skin.

    I had a fingernail injury back in 2016 which led to the detachment of my nail from skin. I have tried supplements and other Medications but the nail never reattaches to the skin. The nail grows alright but just not attached back to the skin like it should. What can i do to get my nail reattached to the skin?

    toenail detached, unsure what to do?

    last night after taking a shower, i noticed that the second toe, not my big toe, the nail was detached. not completely, though. the sides are still attached, but the cuticle had a gap and there is a space when i try to lift up the tip of nail. there is no pain, no bleeding. it is just weird because this has never happened... i did just get 3 new pairs of shoes and am in the process of 'breaking them in' just curious on what to do. do i leave it as is?

    Red dry spots/patches

    Let me just start by saying I've been to several doctors with different theories and different creams (none have worked). This all started about 8 months ago. First appearing as hundreds of tiny tiny blisters on my hands and fingers, eventually I was prescribed a steroid and the problem has since gone. Although not long after I began to have small red dots appear under my breasts, arms and hips, later becoming very itchy and then becoming very scaly rough and dry. Soon after I had very red dry....

    My toe is messed up

    So about a month ago I got my toe smashed in a door. I went to the hospital because it wouldn’t stop bleeding and they said nothing was wrong with it and it should look normal in a week. It look normal in a week and stayed normal for a week, then I woke up one day and it was yellow and red and stuff under the nail and the skin above my toenail is now peeling. I was wondering if maybe I should go see a doctor to get it reassessed because the people in the ER looked at it for about 2 minutes (not even....

    What is this weird brown shadow on my toenail?

    Hi! Okay so I've had this weird brown, dark line (or maybe shadow or patch or something) on my toenail. It's not on my big toenail, it's my second one. It's just on the corner on both of the second toenails on my feet. I've had to for a while and it doesn't hurt, smell, bleed, itch or anything. And I haven't injured my toe or toenail. I'm just worried because I was researching about it and I don't know if it's a fungus or cancer or what. I'm just freaking....

    Black spot under the nail

    I always have my nails painted. I get pedicures frequently. Last week when I went, I noticed I have a small black spot under my toe nail. My mom and husband wants me to get it checked out but honestly, if it's something not concerning I'd rather not waste my time. I'm a busy mom of 4 and so I hate to waste my time if it's something simple.
