: its been about a year since this started. on my left hand, one of my fingernails was raised and at the base was it was flat. the rest of the fingernail was rounded way over what was normal. there were little rough "bubbles" or circles in the surface of the skin. since then, five more fingernails have similar problems. i noticed that the moon shape in some of the nails looks like it is eaten away. there are little holes in the moon shape. the original problem nail is now completely flat. some of the nails are now getting kind of "flaky". i went to a doctor a while ago and they didnt know what it was. they just told me i probably slammed my finger in a door or something stupid like that. if you could just give me some suggestions on where to research this or anything you might thi nk it is, i would greatly appreciate it.
It sounds like you may have psoriasis of the nails. There is a picture of it with a description on my website. Visit at the link below. Print out the picture and the description and take it to your doctor for the proper medication. Sometimes it is much better to visit a dermatologist with nail diseases and disorders as a regular MD doesn't always know.
