  • Long compression in the field of a nail plate, blood circulation violation
  • Careless handling of chemicals
  • Frostbite or system influence by cold

Men are exposed to damage of a nail plate owing to an active physical activity more often. Women usually gain this defect in case of the procedures which are carelessly carried out the manikyurnykh – the basis of a nail is exposed to traumatizing.

Also at careless handling of chemicals or during frostbite of hands there is a negative impact on a root of a nail cloth leading to emergence of ribbing and deformation.

Failures in work of an organism
