Post Wavy nails
I was wondering if anyone has experienced wavy nails. I noticed them little by little....Suddenly they are deeper..waves..kind of difficult to describe.. they are Right to left..not up and down.. I know some other sites say it could be vitamins..or other health issues..I just wondered if anyone out there was familiar..

Hey Lori,
Yes I have the wavy nails and someone also told me I was missing something. Zinc, I think. Hey, if it doesn't hurt, not gonna worry. LOL I'm a solid bag of pain today and still can't sit still.

This is what i love about this site I notice something about my self that keeps catching my eye and making me wonder :shrug Then the next time i turn to the forums the answer,s there and i never even asked about it :lol3 :lol3 Thank you

It was the vertical ridges on my nails i,ve always had them but as i,ve got older they have become rather deep and thick :roll: They feel strange when i rub a finger across them :shrug I had started to wonder if i was lacking in some vits because as i say they are so noticeable these days :shrug

But once again you have got rid of another worry :thumbsup
It,s just weird how you know what i,m thinking :lol3 :lol3 :lol3
Going to have to think only nice thoughts from now on loll loll loll

Love Mo *rows*

Thank you so much for all that useful information...I agree anytime you have a question..some on here is great at helping you find the answers.

I have psoriasis and I take beta blockers, both which may be a part of the wavy nail situation. My fingers break out so bad, I have people ask my why my fingers tips are all peeling (all the way down to first fold) so that with the wavy nails...not great..and I have talked with the doctor..and oddly enough when I have sinus / allergy infections he gives me Medro pack steroids that clear it all up..he says impossible..but everytime I am sick with infection, this is given it is gone..so not sure what to say...he says impossible..hmmm
The wavy nails I guess are now a part of my lucky world..oh well..at least they dont hurt..like psoriasis does..and this dd.

:hart :hart :hart *thanks* *thanks*

Hi Alias,

It is possible that your peeling fingers are a form of excema. I have fingers that peel and crack (especially in the winter) and have been told it is a form of excema. One of the treatments for excema is steroids, I believe, soooo it makes sense that the steroids work on your fingers. You may want to talk to a dermatologist about it as a internist would not neccissarily be aware of that.
