Default Anyone else with pitted fingernails?

I've got one nail in particular that has a bunch of little pits in it. Several others have a couple pits in them. Google tells me I might have psoriasis. That and the lengthwise ridges (though fairly subtle) could mean liver disorder or anemia. As far as I know, I don't show any other symptoms...

I think I'm falling apart. Anyone else have fingernail oddities that do or don't mean something?

Try not to get gross in your descriptions...

Take a multi-vitamin daily, maybe that'll help them out.

I bite my nails to the nubs. Would never even know if I had pits in 'em.

the white spots sometimes indicate vitamin/mineral deficiency. Pitted nails are (as Google told you) usually psoriasis. I have very mild psoriasis that actually affects just certain parts of my hands and around my eyes. It really only flares when I eat something or are exposed to something i'm allergic to. Believe it or not, a lot of people (me included) are convinced that mild detox remedies work. They might work on nail psoriasis too. After spending 1 hour a day in a sauna (Infrared Heat) for about a week, my psoriasis visibly cleared and was gone in a couple of weeks. sweating all that junk out did the trick. anyway, longwinded response. breathe scott, breathe.

to avoid white spots on your nails use a sock when you go into to the bathroom on the late nights, .. jk jk jk....

but really i never heard of white spots on nails, only "egzima" (not sure of spelling) on skin leaving white spots..
