Hello, I want to ask. I am 13 years old, my index finger and my pinky finger are bent to the right like that. My mom said because I used to bite my nails very often. Is that okay?

1 Answer:

Hello Ratih, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

The habit of biting nails might not cause your fingers to bend. Your fingers can become bent because of several possibilities:

genetic factors
certain genetic disorders (such as Ehlers-Danlos)
history of injury to the finger
nutritional disorders (eg rickets)
joint disorders (for example having rheumatoid arthritis)
disorders of the innervation in the fingers

If the condition does not cause any disturbance or you do not feel any other symptoms accompanying the crookedness of your fingers (including no disturbance of bone growth elsewhere, no pain or swelling in the joints), no history of trauma or injury to the fingers, possible finger bending it is indeed only due to genetic factors and it is not dangerous and there is nothing to worry about. But if you feel any other symptoms, you should ask your parents to take you to a pediatrician so that you can do a direct physical examination and supporting examinations if necessary.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
