Little black lines on my nail....HELP!
harleyquinn47 posted:
I need help. I noticed like last week, that I have two little black lines (they're not more then I'm going to say a quarter or an inch or less) near the edge of my thumb nail. My mom who's a nurse says it's nothing to worry about, but she doesn't really freak out about things. I cut my nail to see if that was it, but they're back again. If anyone has had something like this, or knows what I should do...please let me know?! I don't want to go to the doctor's unless I have to. If it's just damage to the nail, then that's fine. But I've never had this before. I want to make sure it's nothing serious. I know it's NOT doctor's that post on here, but someone out there has to be dealing with this. Or has. Thank you in advance! I really appreciate it.

harleyquinn47 replied to mokaprincess's response:
It's not nail polish, it's not nail polish caught under the nail, it's not dirt, and it's not a one time thing since I have cut my nail and they reappeared in the same place. I should have specified that sorry.

Never mind they must have grown out they're gone now.
