Ugly nails
Dear Doc
My one foot's toe nails are thick, yellow, growing upwards and have funny wobbles on them. I see that the nails on my hans also have these thick wobbles on them. I think that it might indicate a shortage of some type of vitamin, but I really don't know which.
Please help, I would hate for my hands to look like claws!

Dear Rosh
this can be caused by fungal infections, diabetes, blood circulation, auto immune diseases, psoriasis - I think you should let your GP have a look to see if it is treatable.
