Fingernails red line

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernails red line

nail

The bottom part of my nails are red/purple, then there is a white strip, and at the very top there is a tiny red/purple bit. It looks like they are all bruised. I havent injured my fingers or my hands, and putting them in hot or cold water doesn't make my nails go back to a normal colour. I noticed them yesterday. Also, I am a 19 year old female if that is relevant. I'm just wondering what could be wrong with them. Thanks in advance.
A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
I would send a picture but I don't see where you do that. It is slightly red but even the area around it is also red...like dry skin..dishpan hands. It doesn't itch but when pressed on it feels like a splinter and is a little sore.
On 02/25/2007 I stated having red bumps all over mostly on my stomach and legs and back. They look like i got bit by bug bites all over. Then it has spread all over my body but the ones on my stomach have just a little all over. They itch like crazy but they are not dry or flaky and they are not open or bloody. Most of them look exactly like bug bites. Any ideas what I might have.
my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left. The right under eye is very red, sore and dry. It feels so rough to touch. I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be? I don't think it is eczema, but believe it could be an allergic reaction to something. I can't seem to work out what it could be?
Began as a small red line, midline from navel, extend up 6 in. NO fever, itching, allergies, or illness. In addition to the main red line, she would have multiple smaller lines on her abdomen that looked as though they were bear-claw marks. These lines would just show up in all different directions. They would appear and disappear as you watch. 3 pedi, 2 NASA docs, and 3 derms state "I don't know what this is!"Atarax/Claritin have no effect. blood work is normal.
For the last few weeks I have been suffering from incredibly sensitive eyes/eyelids which are red, dry and sore, similar to sunburn. I initially thought it was because of some cheap make-up remover wipes that I used to take off my mascara. Although I had been using them for a while, they soon started to sting and burn the area around my eyes whenever I used them. The use of any eye make-up other than mascara would result in a stinging sensation, which varied in terms of severity.
I recently noticed a small pale red line running side to side on top of my grandson's fingernails. He does not chew his nails and is not aggresive in using his hands while playing. He does not take any vitamins that I know of.
During my moms dementia, she was found with fecal material under her fingernails and in her hair. She was a beautiful classy woman-----what a horrible way for her life to end. I found something that may help me but only for one toilet. Then I wondered if I could order a colostomy voluntarily. I remember crying and then I remember getting mad, especially mad too becuase I couldn't find any research about PPMS. I don't remember getting that mad after I was diagnosed.
(was very curly now just frizzy) The skin under all my fingernails starting at the nail bed has a very light fleshy color and as it nears the end of the finder has a red line that turns even a deeper red as the nail extends beyond the end of the finger. The end of the nail is white. The ring fingernails are flat and the middle fingernails are flat to start with and then turn under in a wavy motion.
I could only see on my arm a very small scratch--red (cut )line half an inch--I don't know how deep the scratch went but I could'nt see any blood &it is painful What do you consider my risk to be?
Hi my 12yr old daughter has the chickenpox. The blisters line the edges of her eyelids causing extreme discomfort. Both eyes are red and they are full of a white substance. I called my Dr. and was told it would go over and they didn't have any advice. I can't believe there is nothing we can do. I know a tea bag helps with pink eye. Isn't there something like that we can do? I am afraid of making the pox worse so I could really use some advice.
They are in clusters on the ares of the shaft between the base and head, where the circumcision line is. I know that this is the place my hand makes most contact with during masturbation, so I think this could be it, but I want to be sure. Again, they are tiny and white and rough. I tried to squeeze some with my fingernails and a little of the white stuff came out, but again there are many and they are so small that its pretty impossible for me to remove them in this way. Thanks for any info!
I did go and see my Doctor at the time but he just made me feel stupid and later down the line when they seemed to have stopped I put them down to maybe being anxiety attacks due to the stress of losing my Dad. I will probably write again when I get my test results.

The pointer fingerails have begun to get a small wave to them in the last few weeks.
On the other hand, splinter hemorrhages appear as a red to reddish-brown fine, vertical line that resembles a splinter beneath the nail, this disorder occurs when blood vessels in the nail bed are damaged or from a nail injury. If a dark spot or streak appears on any nail, and is not the result of an injury, it must be examined by a dermatologist to rule out melanoma.
10-15 mm. There was a little burning sensation upon touching these lines. Thanks for any feedback.

I know I shouldn't do it but it's one of those bad habits, like biting your fingernails. Anyway, that was a bad idea. It bleed and began to look rather gross. I went to my doctor and he burnt it off. While he was doing it, he mentioned that it looked like a wart. I informed him that it couldn't have been because I have had it since I was a kid. The only reason it had become a problem is because I tried picking it off.

For several months now, my father has been having trouble with his hands, fingers and fingernails. The skin on his hands peel, and his fingers are red and swollen and are usually quite painful. His nails are thick, crusted, raised and look like they're going to come off. He's been to his general practitioner who prescribed a lotion which did not help. Unfortunately, I do not know the name of the lotion.
The doctor gave her antibiotics and pain medication and drew a circle around the red area, telling her if the redness spread more than an inch from the line drawn to come back to the emergency room immediately. The second and third time she went to her doctor and was diagnosed the same. The doctor wanted to take a culture; however, my granddaughter said her leg hurt so badly she could not stand to have it cut.
unless i am sweaty in that area where it is more like a pasty kind of residue on under my fingernails, smells sort of like an off smell but not strong. I do wash my hands as not to pass this on. Next I have noticed bumps or sort of like lumps on my inner thighs where my thighs rub together, sometimes have white tip like pimples, and do get very sore, some times single lump & sometimes sort of a cluster of two or three lumps like pimples sometimes do.

It is barely visible. In the photo it is in the middle of my fingers along imaginary line connecting the top of the two fingernails. Hard to see because it is skin colored. I went to dermatologist 6 months ago and she checked my scalp and did not think it was an issue. The best I can tell it has not grown at all since. I have some anxiety issues so I check it often. 3 days ago I fixated on it and started touching it more.
My problems began April 06. After a full bikini wax, had oral sex with partner. Went to PCP about painful red spot in clitoral area. Without any tests, PCP said "probably herpes". Spoke to partner who claimed to have no previous history, suggested test. Subsequently had 6 tests over 8 month period for HSV 1 & 2 (3 cultures/3 blood antibody)all negative. Negative for clamydia, ghonorea, syphilis, etc. However, continue to have symptoms that seem to be consistent with HSV.
While looking at the spots last night I noticed a red line under the top of the nail, about one third of the nail was really red or so I thought last night. This morning the red seems to have faded, though still there, and I am trying to find out if this is something like a barometer of the health of the liver. I recently had a lump removed from my knee and wonder if all the lidocaine could have caused stress to my liver or is another extra hepatic manifestation.
Scrotum is red and irritated. Defined line near the bottom of the scrotum where you can see normal skin and red infected skin (been red for a couple months straight) I have woken up with rashes on my chest a few times. Had 2 or 3 times where I had lil red dots on my hands that I thought was a rash that disappeared after a lil time. I had real bad athletes feet. hairs in the rash used to have a coating on them it seemed.
A few weeks ago, my skin disorder reappeared after 3 years and along with it came what only looks like Terrys nails on my fingernails...(most of nail is pale with tips having a red line across). I have been having very bad headaches which I was referred into A&E last October for a CT scan, Thyroid test, another chest xray, blood and urine tests...which all came back ok.
