Nail Growth In A 2 Year Old Child?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nail growth in children who are only 2 years old is different from older children. And although in some conditions, nails can indicate a person's health, it is not always an unnatural appearance of nails to indicate so.
Among the health problems that can occur in nails are:
Nail fungus infection
Bacterial infections, such as pneumonia
Viral infections, such as measles and mumps conditions
Lack of nutrients, such as zinc
Our advice, because we also do not get a full picture of the condition of your child's nails, have your child checked by a pediatrician or a dermatologist for further examination. This is important because usually the condition of abnormalities in the nails is also followed by symptoms of disorders in other systems in the body. The treatment that your child will receive depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, keep your child's nails clean but avoid picking or cutting them too deeply so as not to hurt your child. Also fulfill their nutritional needs and keep their body clean as a whole. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
