According to WebMD and Medicalnewstoday, nail marks, also known as nail ridges or nail grooves, are lines that can appear on the surface of the nails. They can have various causes, including medical conditions, nutritional deficiencies, and lifestyle factors. However, here are some reasons why you have marks on your nail.
As we age, our nails tend to become thinner and more brittle, which can cause ridges to develop or show on our finger nails.
Also, certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies can cause nail ridges, such as deficiencies in vitamin A, vitamin C, biotin, or iron. Experts revealed that some medical conditions can cause nail ridges, such as eczema, anemia, and thyroid disorders.
Certain medications can cause nail marks, such as chemotherapy drugs or retinoids. Exposure to harsh chemicals or environmental toxins can also cause nail marks to develop. You should know that not all nail marks are necessarily a cause for concern. However, if you have other symptoms accompanying the nail marks, it's important to consult your doctor.
