common causes of ridged nails


Aged skin, injury, and illness may all contribute towards the emergence of ridged nails – a fairly common nail issue. These are all possible contributors that can contribute to this common, yet irritating condition.

As our years progress, our finger ails can become weaker, less resilient. Usually this leads to ridges appearing across the surface. However, the cause of these ridges could originate from more than just age; it could be simple circumstances such as accidental nail-biting or lack of care. Moreover, in some circumstances the ridges may be caused by traumatic experience such as a car crash or an unfortunate slip and fall.

If you observe ridged nails on your fingers or toes and have no idea what may be the source, you may need to consult a doctor to rule out any medical conditions. Behind these ridges could be such issues as psoriasis, eczema, and some type of thyroid imbalance. Taking the necessary steps will help you identify any potential cause and secure the right treatment accordingly.

There are simple steps you can take to avoid developing ridged nails. Remember to stay away from biting and from picking at them, and you could also use a nail strengthening agent to help keep them strong and in good shape. Doing so can decrease the chances of your fingernails compromising their appearance with ugly ridges.
