Why Do I Have Lines in My Fingernails?

Answer

You may have lines in your fingernails because you are growing older. Age plays a big part in this process. Yet, age is only one reason why our fingernails will develop lines or ridges. Diet also plays a part, especially being deficient in iron. Skin conditions such as psoriasis is another cause for nail lines and ridges. Finally, trauma such as slamming your fingernails into doors or using them as tools can cause lines or ridges to occur.
