    Split in Fingernail :(

    Left hand, small "pinky" finger -- there is a split in the center of this nail from top to bottom.
    I have bitten this nail down as far as it goes.....in hope that when it grows again it will grow back without a split in this nail. But each time I've tried this, it still grows back with the nail split in the center. It's been like this about at least 12 or so years. I never injured it; it just began to grow like that.Now OK I admit it's not the end of the world but it's just very annoying and I'm curious to see if this ever happened to anyone else.....and also if anything can be done to fix it. Help!!
    Thanks much!

    I guess we should probably look on the positive side and say "Oh well, at least my nine other fingernails are looking good" but I just can't have a positive outlook all the time; sometimes it's just more fun to whine & complain and drive everyone else up the walls.

    My right hand ring finger has had the same split for about 10 years now, I didn't hurt it either. I went to a couple doctors, one gave me some prescription medicine to paint on it, that didn't work. Another told me that she could try removing the nail and seeing if it grew back in without the split, I did not try this.

    Since the nail gets caught in my fair, fabrics, the only thing I can do is get my nails done every few weeks. I have the person put a thin layer of acrylic on the nail before the color. If she just puts the crazy glue on, that will last a few days.

    I have no hopes of this every getting fixed!

    Good luck to you two!
