What causes the bumpy ridges in fingernails? Some of my nails have them and some don't.

    Too cool! You are a wealth of information, and I will begin taking zinc supplements right away. Who knew? Thanks for taking the time to write all of this out--it is very helpful to me and I'm sure other readers as well.

    Cheers!

    Cool! I never noticed it before, but you're right: the ridges on my thumbs are more pronounced. I'll follow your other advice above, too. It's on my list to ask my doctor questions about thyroid and iron and these ridges. Thanks much for your help!

    Agreed! I hadn't considered breathing-related problems before, either! Very interesting. Oh— my ridges go vertically, parallel to the growth off the nail and opposite to yours. Thanks for your comments, Moon Daisy!

    Calcium (vitamin d milk) (don't take calcium supplements b/c it's easy to overdose) and plenty of H2O daily and after a month or 2, the ridges will be a distant memory. :3

    Interesting question! Yes, I have two breathing-related problems that are very mild and don't normally affect me. Perhaps you've nailed (sorry, I couldn't resist the pun) the problem right there!! Thanks for your comment!

    Thanks! I can use all the help I can get. (Couldn't we all, right?) I'll be sure to see a dermatologist and ask about the psoriasis cream if my nails get so bad that they are tender or get pits in them. :-) Thanks again for your help!
