My nail will grow and they continue to be there. my nail at the tip is actually starting to indent with all the ridges. It start at the top of the nail. I would like to know what I can do to fix this problem because everyone notices it and it and I cant get rid of it.
Go see you dr. - preferably a holistic one - and get some bloodwork done. I started having the same problem a year or so ago and had bloodwork showing deficiency of iron, vit d, mag and was hypothyroid. I don't know which of these causes what you have, but one of them causes it.
