    Question Dark lines under your fingernails

    Why do these *dark* lines appear under your fingernails and how do you prevent/stop these lines from appearing?

    Re: Dark lines under your fingernails

    Which direction are the lines, parallel to the length of the nail or running across the width of nail?

    The dark lines run across the length of the nail

    Could be a vitamin B-12 deficiency.
