Why baby’s nails are abnormal

The child’s normal nails are pink, plump, smooth and glossy, and the nails are tough. There is no barb on the outline of the nail’s edge. Some parents often pay attention to their children’s nails. When they find abnormalities, they suspect that the children are not vitamin-deficient.

The reason is not necessarily a lack of vitamins.

White or light pink nails If the baby’s nails are white or pale red, and the symptoms of chlorosis on the top, dry skin, reddening of the eye’s conjunctiva and lips, or whitish symptoms, the baby is most likely anemic. At this point parents need to adjust the baby to a good diet, 6-month baby can add iron fortified rice noodles, and then some of the larger baby can properly eat some iron-rich foods, such as animal liver, pig blood, red meat, egg yolk Etc., and at the same time, supplement some foods rich in protein, lactose, and vitamins to promote the absorption of iron. If the anaemia is severe, some iron may be taken under the guidance of a doctor.

Fingernails are grayed out and darkened. If your baby’s nails appear gray or black, most of them are caused by fungal infections. Parents should try to keep the baby’s hands clean and dry. If other people in the family have a fungal infection, try to avoid contact with the baby to avoid infection.

Fingernails have horizontal grooves and dimples. When an abnormal phenomenon, such as a lateral groove, a small pit, and a longitudinal tear, appears on the deck of the baby’s nail, it may be a signal from some diseases in the body. Ke Haijin, for example, said that if a dimple appears on the deck, it may be a sign of the baby suffering from chronic inflammatory skin disease (psoriasis, alopecia areata, etc.). When there is a longitudinal rupture of the deck, it may be related to the baby suffering from systemic disease or trauma. Therefore, when the baby’s nail deck is found to be abnormal, it is best to take it to the hospital and ask a dermatologist or pediatrician for treatment.
