What causes fingernails to split

Common Questions and Answers about What causes fingernails to split


Avatar n tn you could be lacking vitam E C and or B and that is what causes your nails to break quite easily. depending on how deep the split is you migth have to get it checked out beause it could hit a nerve, open and cause infection.
Avatar n tn I have had every diagnosis under the sun from allergy (patch tested- there is nothing), to possibel STIs (negative), to sebaceous cysts (so why the continuous itching etc when the lesions are not there), to acid vagina (this must be the weirdest), to stress, to vulvodynia (this is where doctors go when thye don't know what to say next- ie: random pain syndrome). Vulvodynia was the most depressing as the answer always was its a confused nerve signal, we don't know what to do about it.
1882966 tn?1320749059 By adding in the T3, that would result in less T4 needing to be converted which would then result in your FT4 levels to increase. And that may be what the Dr is attempting to do. But without the reference range information we can't determine that.
Avatar n tn I am proud to say that the spot has been gone SIX whole days now! Not sure what causes it, but with my remedy, I think it has something to do with the balance of the oils in our scalp getting out of whack somehow. I hope this helps all of you!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
Avatar f tn Also my mom switched up the shampoos a few years ago; from generic to organic? Could THAT have had a negative impact? I'm at a loss of what to do here. I switch shampoos frequently to see if anything helps, but to no avail. Should I consult someone?
Avatar f tn yeah all opiates cause severe dryness, itching, and general skin irritation.I cant honestly tell you what exactly chemically causes opiates to directly cause the severe itching and dryness that the skin endures but every single opiate/opioid has those side-effects the more potent the opiate the more severe the itching will get. People that generally have dry skin will have more irritation and the itchies whereas those with very moist skin have less side-effects from them.
5466288 tn?1410488785 Hard cuticles and soft nails seemed to be a common problem, again it seemed to be more about cosmetic causes than health related. There was no end to the tips and tricks to fix it, so i'd google for some ideas there. Cheers.........
Avatar f tn I used to take two a day (split one to add a third dose), and now I'm up to four a day, this is over a period of five years. So, I think if you could get ahold of that category of medication, which is one of four recommended on all legitimate websites on the issue, you would at least have THAT out of your life, and still be able to function and work like a regular person with very little concern over addiction.
Avatar f tn The palm of my hands turn red and sometimes I can see yellow tinges that come and go. my fingernails and toenails seems to turn bluish purpilish when they are cold. I have swelling in my hands and I also have digestive problem. I get adrenaline rushes randomly and I get sharp stabbing pains everywhere. sometimes my muscles feel so weak they make me feel like i would just collapse. everyday i wake up and i feel like im dying.
Avatar f tn Do a series of ongoing hot oil treatments to protect the hair's shaft. Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier. Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair. Hair Growing Tips The answer to "instant hair growth" is that there isn't any. There is no magic bullet.
Avatar f tn ) is what would any of you do next? Do we go to the family doctor and tell her everything? She sees the therapist in a couple of weeks, should I present all of this to her and ask if we should go to a medical dr. and have things checked? Oh, I thought they had checked her thyroid numbers in 2011 too, but I can't find any results from it. So they either didn't check it, or I didn't get a copy. I don't want to over react, but I don't want to under react.

Avatar m tn No I am not going through treatment right now although will say what I can to help. Hey....can't hurt to try, Right? Let me know if anyone has tried Hoofmaker and let me know your results. Later........

Avatar f tn each one enough for a wig, hairdressers would tell me they'd never seen so much hair, everyone told me how lucky I was, people stopped me to ask what i used on my hair, etc., etc., ) I never thought a thing of my hair, never did anything but wash it daily. It was gorgeous. After tfe birth of my first child, I was severly depressed and my Dr. tested me for thyroid problems. He said I had a goiter. He put me on synthroid and THAT'S when my hair started changing texture and falling out.
Avatar n tn I am otherwise healthy, though I do drink alcohol. Can anyone give me any hint as to what it might be like to experience a pancreatitis attack? Thanks a lot.
429155 tn?1205676864 Well after the operation I thought I'd better cut down as constipation was real bad issue, up to 45mins to pass what seemed like an Elephant, I even ruptured a nose blood vessel with the straining at one time, and as a friend who had had the same operation was off painkillers after 3 weeks I thought now's the time. ( 05/12/07 ) So taking the bull by the horns I cut down to 40mg 2x a day, and never expected what happens next.
544292 tn?1268886268 Please come on in and make yourself at home. This is a very good place to be if you want to get off and stay off Tramadol.
Avatar f tn Hi there. Very sorry for all that has happened. You've been through the ringer. My first reaction, although this isn't what you want to hear, is that it is indeed your own anxiety that caused the panic attack and not the medication. Reason being is the timing. However, it also sounds like your doctor skipped the important part of implanting medication whether you've taken it before or not of titrating up in dosage to the therapeutic dose.
Avatar n tn I think it is very interesting to see how our lives change after eradicating the virus, and what we all must endure to finally get to a much better place. I hope I did not sound too negative in my post, since the reality is that in many ways I feel better and healthier now than in years....it's just those couple of really annoying symptoms that seem to 'crash the party' at times.
233488 tn?1310696703 which eye to operate on first, what type of IOL to insert, desired-targeted post-operative refractive error, how much glasses will need to be worn post operatively [NOTE: glasses are almost uniformly needed post operatively and are usually modern progressive bifocals] SOME OF THE TIME a small % of people after cataract surgery can function without glasses or with inexpensive over the counter reading glasses.
Avatar f tn I know this isn't the best thing to do, but I can't get in to see my doc until the 16th, and because she's not an endo, she's not going to know what to do anyway. Yesterday, for the first time in months, I slept a little better, my stomach feels better, and this morning my feet have actual signs of tendons and ankles and I feel less swollen in my hands as well. I have told my doctors all along that I have non-pitting edema but they do nothing or tell me I should wear support hose.
Avatar n tn for that we'd need to know what causes it. However, if it is 'inflammation of skin nerves' ...then I'm going to make sure I take my fish oil, and all my antioxidants that help internal inflammation. What I want to know is if anyone else has tried the Zonalon 5% cream...and to share their experience.
Avatar n tn But then days or weeks later my thumb and index finger crack up and start to bleed and I can use those fingers at all because If I put pressure it hurts like crazy. I've been researching of what to use but this discussions help to know what does and doesn't help. If you have a cure please let me know.
Avatar n tn I insisted on being checked specifically, so yet another, and deeper, swab later, it's off being cultured to see what grows. A few days to find out. The drug to treat it, metronidazole, is used to cure this, bacterial vaginosis and also thrush. He thinks she could have either one of these and her doctor simply said it's trichomoniasis without even giving a thought for the consequences of what saying that could have.
Avatar n tn we had sex a few days ago and it was kinda sore yesterday but today i took a shower and put vaseline on it and it feels alot better (for those who are wondering what to do). He is pretty big (if u know what i mean) and i know i had to tell him a few times to let me scoot down while he was on top bc i could feel alot of pressure on the outside? Why is this?
Avatar n tn but I am bias on that as I feel I was truely blessed to have been one of the more fortunate ones that was not affected as adversly as the majority seem to be... which brings me back to this thought..... AGE... what do ya'll think about that??? I mean Snooks skated thru relatively easy, & far easier than I.... For me the MENTAL Aspects of Tx was far worse than the physical... but I did have painful flare-ups with CTS, which ahas now subsided again....
Avatar f tn my menstrual cycle is still somewhat wacky, and turns out I had ovarian adhesions that a laparosvopy surgery discoered and forrected. Please share your thoughts and expertise...I really am confused as to what is happening to my body! I just want my normal hair back!
Avatar m tn My mom and dad have no smoked pot, so they claim and never drink or claim to have ever been even intoxicated. So for there son to be a junkie, they had no clue what to do with me or a clue on what i was going through. So i was just shipped off to rehab after rehab for about a year and a half, in different ****** towns in TX, seeing no family or most importantly friends that entire time.
