| | Holes in my nails
Hi i've been having this problem for the past 2-3 years now and i cant figure out why and my doctor kinda just ignores it when i bring it up.
So what it is, is that i used to chew my nails and i stopped doing that for a long time because everyone told me it was bad for them, so i did; and after a few months or so my nails looked great! Like they should have in the first place, but then (roughly) a month after that a circular hole appeared in them (towards the back where the skin meets the nail). At first I thought well maybe i stabbed it with something by accident so I let it be, however as a few weeks went by more and more appeared on different nails. They spread and make the top layer of the nail a dead shell that is separate of the bottom layer. It stops growing if i cut the dead part off and file it but by that time its already ugly and nasty looking.
When i say alot i mean 4-5 of the same holes on different fingers. I dont really mind so much that i have them, but more that no one seems to help me figure out what they are or f they can really be hurting my nails.
Thanks for your time
