Children Hand Nails Vertically Black Striped?
Good night …. why is Yach my son’s hand nails with black stripes … Please help. Thanks.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nails are indeed one part of the body that is often ignored. But in reality, nails can also experience disease and can provide information about ourselves more than we thought. In the case of your child, black-lined nails can occur due to the following possibilities, including:
Fungal infections Conditions of the immune system disorders Inflammation of blood vessels Lack of intake of certain nutrients Injury due to collision Disorders of the heart muscle
So indeed, to find out the appearance of black lines on the nails must be accompanied by other findings on the body. Like for example if your child has just played ground or other activities that make his hygiene less awake, whether your child often feels palpitations or shortness of breath, whether his hand has just been pinched or bumped, and so forth. For this reason, we recommend that you take your child to a dermatologist, to see first hand about his condition, and look for trends through a combination of history exploration, physical examination and supporting examinations if necessary. By doing this, the diagnosis will be more precise, and the treatment will be much better.
Meanwhile, keep your child's hands clean, make sure he doesn't pinch his fingers, meet his nutritional needs and see a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
