About Nail Disorders
Whether you like them long or short, painted or natural, your nails say a lot about you. There are many nail disorders that change the appearance or condition of your fingernails and toenails. Nail disorders could be caused by a bacterial or fungal infection, virus, or an underlying medical disease, such as lung cancer or liver disease. If you discover a change in your fingernails or toenails, schedule an appointment with dermatologist Dr Christopher Rex.
If you have concerns about the appearance or condition of your fingernails or toenails, you should schedule an appointment at Peak Dermatology. Some of the most common indicators of a nail disorder are inflammation beneath and around your nails, a change in the color of your nails, brittle or thin nails that split easily, and nails that are bumpy or grooved. In some cases, a nail disorder might cause pain in your nails, making it hard to hold objects or type on a keyboard.
