Hi sir, I recently noticed dents on my nails. Does that mean anything? Do I have a disease?
Hi Kiran garu, Beau’s lines or Dents in nails are indentations that run across the nails. The indentations can appear when growth at the area under the cuticle is interrupted by injury or severe illness. Fingernails are made by living skin cells in the fingers. So, a skin condition such as eczema may lead to fingernail ridges. Our nails naturally develop slight vertical ridges as we age. However, severe and raised ridges can be a sign of iron deficiency anemia. Nutritional deficiencies, such as a lack of vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B12 or keratin, zinc can result in fingernail ridges etc. Hormonal changes can also cause ridges to appear. Horizontal dents in fingernails or toenails specifically are likely Beau’s lines. Additionally, Beau’s lines are associated with “uncontrolled diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, as well as illnesses associated with a high fever, such as scarlet fever, measles, mumps and pneumonia,” the good news about Beau’s lines is that they’ll eventually go away. If they’re the result of one-time trauma, the nail will eventually grow out and the lines will disappear. Homeopathy is an excellent option to cure Beau’s lines naturally without any side effects. Homoeopathy offers you the most gentle and safe treatment for this condition. Some of the commonly indicated medicines for this condition are Antimonium crudum, Graphites, Thuja occidentalis, Acid Flour, Acid Nit etc. Better to take an experienced Homoeopathic physician’s advice before taking medicines.
