I have abnormal nail growth on my right ring finger as a result of a door crush injury when I was a young child (many, many years ago
). As it became apparent that it was not regrow properly, I consulted with my doctor who quickly replied that it would do so given some time. Like another poster, I hesitated to see another doctor for a long time, and am getting the sinking feeling that the damage is permanent, but would like consult with one now but am clueless to where I should start looking. I do not know exactly how to describe it, but it looks like the lunula extends all the way to the edge of fingernail where it then forms into another nail under the original. As a result, the top nail is raised, thick, and conical shaped. The "nail" underneath is thick as well with ridges. I just hope there is a doctor who may be able to perform surgery on it. I appreciate any suggestions or experiences. Thanks!
