Fingernail Problems: Separated, Pitted or Lined Nails
Healthy fingernails appear smooth, with white tips, pinkish nail beds and have consistent texture and coloring. Some changes in fingernail appearance can be harmless – such as vertical ridges that may develop due to age.
However, other fingernail abnormalities or changes may be the result of more serious medical conditions. An experienced hand and fingernail doctor can examine your fingernail changes, along with your other symptoms, to make the proper diagnosis and implement the best treatments.
If you are suffering from changes in your fingernails, take a look at the images below of some for a general idea of what may be going on. Then call one of our Troy area offices (Shelby Township & Bloomfield Hills) for a consultation with experienced hand doctor, Dr. Rehman.
