horizontal llnes on big toes

Hello, I have a ton of small horizontal lines/ridges on my large toes. You can actually see and feel them. What could it be?

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Are you referencing your toe or toenail? Do you have a picture? Sometimes ridges in the nails can represent a period of slowed nail growth (illness) or it can be a natural part of your nail.

    If there is any irregularity or trauma to your nail matrix this can also cause irregular nail growth. Again to provide a more accurate answer, I’d honestly need to see your toe or toenail.

    Thank you.
