Fixing "Splinter Hemorrhages"
So yesterday we spoke about what "splinter hemorrhages" are . . .
Well today . . . we're going to figure out if there's a way to fix them.
Now . . . if they're caused by "trauma" to the nail . . . the "hemorrhage" will clear up within a couple of days on their own . . . or slowly disappear as the nail grows out . . . which could take a few months.
And with this . . . "no" medical treatment is needed.
But . . . is you have a "splinter hemorrhages" that last longer than 4 months . . . or they're a large thick line . . . this may be a more serious issue.
"Splinter hemorrhages" can occur with an "infection" of the "heart valves" (endocarditis) . . . And in this case "splinter hemorrhages" may be caused by vessel damage from swelling of the blood vessels or tiny clots that damage the small capillaries.
And this is NOW . . . a discussion you and your own healthcare provider should be having.
Okay . . . so what else can cause "splinter hemorrhages"???
Well . . . that would be . . . a vitamin C deficiency due to weakened blood vessels that rupture easily.
And what about "Beau's lines" . . . what can cause them???
Well . . . that would be . . .
A high fever caused by infection, severe cutaneous inflammatory diseases like Stevens-Johnson syndrome, Kawasaki disease, eczema, pustular psoriasis, pemphigus vulgaris . . . severe stress to the body . . . and even a reaction to medication.
