Wavy Nails And There Are Faint Black Lines?
Hello, I am a wife … I want to ask about my husband’s situation. My husband aged 40 this few months complained: 1. the left hand nail, which is precisely the middle finger wrinkled? 2. right foot with a black line though faint? (This has been a very long time) 3. The left toe of the horizontal nail is bumpy? That’s why yes, but until now there are no worrisome symptoms .. just sometimes I feel dizzy from work, getting tired asking for something normal .. And I say read articles even afraid that some say heart, skin cancer, diabetes etc … Please explain? Thank you 😊😊😊

Indeed there are some serious diseases that are accompanied by symptoms of abnormalities in the nails. However, of course there will be major symptoms of this serious illness. For example, a person suffering from diabetes mellitus or diabetes will have nails that are easily infected with a fungus, called onychomycosis. Onychomycosis will be marked nails become dull and thickened. However, of course also will be accompanied by the main symptoms of diabetes itself, such as frequent hunger, frequent thirst, frequent urination, numbness in the fingers or toes, and other complaints.
Related to the condition of nail disorders experienced by your husband, it can also be a nail disease that is localized only to the nails. However, this still cannot be tolerated. Consult with a dermatologist to be able to overcome them. There are several diseases that may be related. Each disease will need different treatments according to the cause. Your doctor will do a direct physical examination to find out the causes and diseases. Henceforth will provide appropriate treatment.
The diseases of the nails that may occur are:
1. Onychomycosis, which is a fungal infection of the nail. This disease is often experienced by someone who is often in contact with water, such as washer washers and fishermen.
2. Terry's nails, which are marked with the tips of the nails become dark. This is related to the aging process.
3. Wavy nails, can be caused by the aging process and can be a sign of a serious disease (such as heart problems, diabetes, arsenic poisoning and others).
Nails that change in color and shape, are often very fragile, so avoid biting your nails. Avoid using narrow footwear. Also, take care of your nail health by replacing socks that are damp from sweat and washing your feet from outside activities.
Thus hopefully useful.
