Overview

Nail conditions include a wide range of issues that can affect the health, appearance, and function of the nails. Here’s an overview of some common nail conditions:

Ingrown toenails: These occur when the edge of the nail grows into the surrounding skin, causing pain, swelling, and infection. Causes include improper nail trimming, tight footwear, or injury.

Fungal nail infections: This causes discoloration, thickening, and brittleness of the nails. A tough condition to treat, these may require oral or topical antifungal medications.

Nail psoriasis: Psoriasis can cause pitting, discoloration, and abnormal nail growth. It may also be associated with other symptoms of psoriasis, such as skin plaques.

Brittle nails: Weak, brittle, or easily breakable nails are caused by frequent water exposure, harsh chemicals, or deficiencies in nutrition.

Beau's lines: These are horizontal ridges or grooves that appear across the nails. These can be caused by injury, illness, or nutritional deficiencies and may indicate a temporary disruption in nail growth.

FAQs

What do healthy nails look like?

Healthy fingernails are smooth, without any pits or grooves. They are uniform in colour and consistency, with no spots or discolouration on them. Sometimes, they also develop vertical ridges that run from the cuticle to the tip of the nail, which are completely harmless.

Will my nail fungus grow out?

Fungal nail that has invaded the nail plate is unlikely to go away on its own without any podiatric intervention. If you plan on using topical ointments and home remedies while the nail grows out, be aware that it can take up to 18 months for the nail fungus to clear up.
