Why Do I Have Ridges in My Fingernails?
How to Treat Nails with Ridgeswhat
Fingernails seem like a pretty uneventful body part. They grow. You cut them. Maybe paint them. But in reality, your nails can give you a glimpse into your overall health. If something is going on in your body, your nails could start to change, sometimes developing ridges. Lines running from the bottom of the nail to the tip are the most common form of ridges in fingernails, affecting about 20 percent of adults.
Your fingernails are a great barometer of your health. There are two types of ridges that can appear on your nails: vertical and horizontal. Vertical ridges run from the cuticle to the tip of your nail and are very common, especially as you age. These ridges are typically no cause for concern. Horizontal ridges can be caused by trauma to the nail and may be deep or discolored.
