nail disorders

Nail disorders are quite common and can affect any part of the nail without changing its appearance in any manner.

Given below are some of the most common nail disorders that people can suffer from.

Toe Nail Ingrowth:

This disorder can be caused due to several reasons including improper cutting of nails, tight footwear and even hyperhidrosis. It can cause pain and even lead to infection and difficulty in walking.


This disorder enhances the soft tissue growth of the distal part of the fingers and toes. Finger clubbing has been found to be related with other major ailments such as congenital heart disease, infective endocarditis, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis etc.


In this disorder, the nail gets detached from its bed along the base and sides, enabling dirt to get accumulated in the space created underneath. This condition can be either be inherited or caused by systematic diseases, skin ailments and exposure to chemicals or trauma.

Splinter Hemorrhages:

These linear hemorrhages occur parallel to the long axis of the fingernails or toenails. This disorder can be caused by trauma, infective endocarditis, vasculities, haematological malignancy and severe anemia.

Median Nail Dystrophy:

In this disorder, center groves are developed in the center of the nail besides which the cuticles become inflated and are pushed back. This is generally caused by patients picking their proximal nail fold thumb with an index fingernail.

    Dear Cocoona & Dr. Sanjay, Thank you so much for my Breast Augmentation procedure. Its 1 month on and I could not be happier with the result . All the way through from the initial consultation to the post op checkups, all your staff has been wonderful. The Dubai London Clinic for the surgery was fantastic. I would definitely recommend to others to Cocoona. Now if you could fix my handwriting skills please?
    Thanks again.

    Dear Lovely Staff of Cocoona, I love the environment of the Clinic, staff is so beautiful & positive always smiling. And Dr. Sanjay is the best, friendly, positive & smart. I am very happy with the procedure that I have done & I strongly recommend anyone who is reading these to please “go for it”. Mini and the other Nurses around are dolls, cute and positive. Love the All!
    Thank you & Best Regards

    I want to thank you for the great effort and expertise that you put in the hair transplant procedure which you did on me. You have fixed a big cut from a previous, very bad hair transplant in Jordan. It kept me very nervous and uncomfortable for very long time. Now, after conducting this surgery by you, I feel very very happy because the cut is almost gone. I like your personality and professionalism. I am really glad that I made a decision to come to Dubai and conduct the surgery at Cocoona Clinic Thank you very much.
