Fingernail not smooth

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernail not smooth

nail

I have an 8 yr old daughter who has two fingernails, one on each hand, that are not smooth, they are slightly bumby and the nail that grows out at the end is not uniform, curvy. They do not have complete horizontal ridges across them. Sort of like moguls on a ski slope. They are not discolored and it only occurs in those two fingernails. She has had this for close to a year. She's rarely sick and if it was nail fungus I would think it would have spread to her other nails.
No fungus just nails are dark and rough like ripples on the nail not smooth like a nail should be just hope it not another something to go with everything else ;-)
I was a little afraid to keep peeling, so I clipped it off with fingernail clippers. But underneath was fresh pink skin (looked good, not damaged). Unfortunately, the story it told was that, yes, mama and the babies were alive and well, and went clear through that thick piece of skin. The lesson from all this: you really need to go deep.
I scratch and by morning its huge and red, sometimes painful. My left eye is very different. It is not as sensitive. Gets itchy higher, not as much or as often and never swells. After the "itch, scratch and swelling episode" the swelling goes away and I am left with VERY dry skin. I apply lotions at night and after a day or two, I am left with wrinkles!
Hi Im 13 and i have a lump on on the back of my leg above my knee , It is not painful, It is the same colour as the surrounding skin, It is hard , smooth and does not move about freely Its about the size of a fingernail I would like to know what you think because my gran had skin cancer and my mind wont rest until i find out what the lump is! Or am i just being paranoid?
I thought, at first, that I had a splinter and the skin was growing back over it. I cut it out the fingernail clips and thought nothing else about it. But now the brown spot is coming back. It is not as large as it was but it is noticeable. Should I be worried about it being skin cancer? The first time I noticed it the skin was hard, flat and brown. Now the skin is smooth but has 3 small brown spots in the same spot I thought the splinter was. Should I be worried? Because I am.
I go over it with my finger and they feel smooth. They don't look like cauliflower texture at all and they are separated apart from each other like 2mm. I kind of have two stretch the scrotum skin out in order to see these bumps otherwise you cannot really see them. I squeezed one of these bumps and a small amount of clear fluid came out of it so I immediately cleaned it off with antibacterial soap and put on bactrobin.
I noticed a few days later after having sex an extreme itch just under the head of my penis.It looked like large iregular shaped welts that were smooth red and swollen.The itching was not like a poison ivy itch that is on the surface and gives you an urge to scratch but more like an intense tingling itch underneath the skin.These symptoms did not occur until 30 to 60 minutes after sex.The only thing that helps the itching and swelling subside is to run scalding hot water over it.

Hello, A year ago, I suffered from a corneal abrasion which was simply produced by my unfortunate fingernail. The two cuts were in the center of the cornea according to two ophtalmologists; they healed, but one year after the event, my doctor still can see minor scars on my cornea, although I was properly treated with drops and antibiotics. After the scratch, I experienced slightly clouded vision with this eye, but it was very minor and it disappeared quickly.

like a bug bite i guess...idk if that's just normally occurring thing or not... anyway there is no pain at all and it does not bleed when i go to the bathroom that ive noticed maybe MAYBE only real small amounts when i push too hard and suddenly relax and its a harder stool... but other then that the only time it ever bleed is when i scratched it by mistake..
But I read that molluscum usually goes away after a few months, and I was just hoping they would go away. They are not really smooth and pearly like I have heard molluscum described. They are small - 1mm to 5mm - slightly curved, skin-coloured bumps (when they get older they seem to get darker). I can't see any dimple in them, they seem a little bumpy and a little rough, but they don't look like warts either (at-least not the "regular" warts that grow on fingers and what have you).

Hello, I am always itchy, all over my body. I know from other posts that dry skin causes itchiness, but I know I don’t have dry skin. Its isn’t like a rash, but when I itch, my skin becomes raised. After I itch I can see the path of my fingernails, they seem to "swell." On my arms, however, I get little raised bumps after I itch. Anti-itch cream doesn’t work because the same area never stays itchy for too long and I can’t predict which area of my body will become itchy next.
About 4 days later, 2 small marks appeared on my right thumb and in the same area on my left hand a large blotch appeared, that has only changed in color, now a medium brown as well. They are not raised and do not itch. They look like ink blots. I recently moved to CA and lay out maybe once a week, but I have always spent time in the sun. I really haven't done much out of the ordinary.
A couple of months ago I noticed a tenderness and mild pain under my right index fingernail. It appeared slightly discolored, but I assumed I must have banged my finger at work and that the problem was simply a bruise or blister that would go away. The pain came and went for weeks, and the left corner of the nail started to come up off the finger.
I went to the doctor 2 years ago when I first noticed them, they just gave me anti dandruff shampoo and told me to cover the areas and leave for 10 minutes before I showered. This did not help and they did not say what it was, I have not been back since. I think some GP's are quite useless and would like some genuine help to get rid of them.
it's skin color, appears smooth, if I run my fingernail over it I can feel it catch slightly(maybe) honestly I cant tell for sure it's raised. I would say its a pore, if there was a hair coming out, but there is not...That's how small it is... If I held a cotton ball with vinegar on it for 10 minutes and it did not turn white, does that mean it's most likely not a wart?
I re-examined the glass thing and I found out on the round edge instead of being smooth, it had a point on it because apparently the stupid thing was not made properly. I know I should have reported this, but I have gone to employee health previously because I thought I got something in my eye. They didn't do any testing or anything because they didn't think I was at risk (I felt something dry in my eye, and the stage in the testing had washed away all the serum).
He'll have to be put to sleep and it'll be a full blown operation surgery thing, i don't know if i should go ahead with it or not. It is nice to see that this is not uncommon though.
it's not a disc shape flat against the wall of my mouth, it's like a disc sticking out into my mouth, like gluing a penny to a wall by the thin edge. I'd like to restate how thin it is, it's hard and moves up and down without flexing, but it is no thicker than a banknote. Very strange, quite unlike anything I've felt in my mouth before.
sorry it's so long but I wanted to put in more details ________ The one I'm more worried about it these bumps coming out of my skin (they are not smooth like a zit or something like that) they are about the size of a pencil before it's sharpened (the head of it) I got 1 last year and it bugged me so I picked at it and scraped the skin off it and it bled but it kept coming back. Eventually I learned to live with it.
Warts are not at all likely and are not contagious to touch. Mites don't sound possible. Chilblains are firm and not blistery, but the bumps you describe don't really sound like blisters. If they are chilblains, all you need to or can do is warm the areas. I think the GP's advice to watch and wait is sound. Best. Dr.
I have also been getting petechia here and there but they ran blood work and said it all checked out good. I have not been banging my hands or anything so I know it is not from trauma. The only other time that I have ever had these is when I have gotten my nails done, for some reason every time I get fake nails on a few days later they appear and I can see them through the acrylic though I never knew what they were and didn't think much about them. Does anyone have any idea's?
You are at the age that you must quit chewing on them. Get a nice fingernail kit and trim them with clippers, smooth rough edges with a fingernail file, and then wash the equipment and your fingers well when done with your nail care. By the way, your OCD symptoms can be controlled by lots of exercise that makes you sweat, it releases tension in the body.
Our 6 yr old biy, soon to be 7, sometimes returns from school and sporting activities with several of his finger tips picked to a point that a layer of skin is almost off and in some circumstances, they begin to bleed. This dosent happen every day, but recently, more than not. We struggle with this, but do not want to embarass our son. We have thought of him wearing gloves or band-aids, but he picks off the band-aids..
