    Koilonychia in one thumb only

    This has been going on now for around three years.
    I only have a "spoon nail" on my right thumb.
    It gets very thin and the spoon grows out in around six to eight weeks.
    It is actually more like an inverted ridge. like a beau's line.

    The nail gets thinner by the indented area and remains normal in front and behind and is slowly grows out towards the edge of the nail where I generally cut it very short or chew it down to the quick!

    No pain just an uncomfortable feeling due to the thinness of the nail.

    I am looking at it now and the cresent by the cuticle is now like an arch rather than a crescent.

    Any diagnosis and cure would be welcome!
