Some of the causes of nail disorders include the following:
· Infections such as paronychia warts and green nail syndrome
· Internal diseases such as certain lung diseases, which can cause yellow nail syndrome
· Structural problems such as an ingrown toenail
· Birth deformities such as pachyonychia congenital
With aging, nails become dry and brittle and flat or concave instead of convex. They may develop ridges along their length. Nail color may change to yellow or gray. Brittle nails may split.
Toenails require special attention in older people and in people with diabetes or peripheral vascular disease. Such people may have poor sensation in their feet, which increases the risk of injury when they try to trim their nails.For information and appointments call 9004839333.Clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.
