I am having Red/black lines on all finger nails and do not go away with time. Please advise

I am having Red/black lines on all finger nails and do not go away with time. Please advise
Lines and other deformities or color changes are relatively common, and most of them are not serious. This is particularly true if the line runs vertically. Horizontal lines running through the nail, on the other hand can sometimes indicate an underlying medical problem. Vertical ridges or lines in the nail often do not have a clear cause. Sometimes they may be genetic and require no treatment. These lines are usually clear or white, but can become dark in color if they have dirt or fingernail polish lodged in them. Occasionally, fungal infections of the nail will cause similar lines, although typically there is also more generalized deformity or thickening of the nail as well. Another possibility would be a foreign body under the fingernail, which can look like a black line. Common types of foreign bodies that can do this include wood splinters or pencil leads. Finally, rarely, bleeding can show up under the nails as small dark lines called splinter hemorrhages. This would most likely occur in multiple nails, however, but if there are any other signs of bleeding or bruising, fever, or other concerning signs this should be checked out. If you any doubts or concerns, you should visit your primary care doctor to examine your nails.

Dyslexia - What To Know About It?

Raising a child with dyslexia can stir up a lot of emotions. You may look ahead and wonder if this learning issue will affect your child's future. But dyslexia is not a prediction of failure. Dyslexia is quite common, and many successful individuals have dyslexia.

Research has proven that there are different ways of teaching that can help people with dyslexia succeed. There's a lot you can do as a parent too.

What are the symptoms of dyslexia?

Because dyslexia affects some people more severely than others, your child's symptoms may look different from those in another child. Some kids with dyslexia have trouble with reading and spelling. Others may struggle to write or to tell left from right.

Dyslexia can also make it difficult for people to express themselves clearly. It can be hard for them to structure their thoughts during conversation. They may have trouble finding the right words to say.

Others struggle to understand what they're hearing. This is especially true when someone uses nonliteral language such as jokes and sarcasm.

The signs you see may also look different at various ages. Some of the warning signs for dyslexia, such as a speech delay, appear before a child reaches kindergarten.

Keep in mind that kids (and families) are all different, so not all options will work for you. Don't panic if the first strategies you try aren't effective. You may need to try several approaches to find what works best for your child. Here are some things you can try at home:

  • Read out loud every day
  • Tap into your child's interests
  • Use audiobooks
  • Look for apps and other high-tech help
  • Focus on effort, not outcome
  • Make your home reader-friendly
  • Boost confidence

What can make the journey easier?

Dyslexia can present challenges for your child and for you. But with the proper support, almost all people with dyslexia can become accurate readers. Your involvement will help tremendously.

Wherever you are in your journey, whether you're just starting out or are well on your way, this site can help you find more ways to support your child. Here are a few things that can help make the journey easier:
