Brief Answer:
Get some blood tests done

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs and can appreciate longitudinal striations in some nails.
The colour of the nails seems to be almost normal apart from slightly dark at some places.
I would recommend you to get your complete blood count, serum vitamin B12 levels, liver function tests, kidney function tests and thyroid function tests.
If these come normal no need to worry.
Regards
Dr Asmeet

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
