My daughter's toenails have always grown in a weird way. They don't grow OUT, but grow DOWN. If I let them grow, I'm sure they'd end up curving completely around the tip of the toes and around to the bottom. And they grow in a way that when they do get a little long and start to bend down, they are pressing against her toe tip to where when I do cut, there's an indent where the nail was.
I read in Reader's Digest yesterday that fingernails that grow bending downward can mean hung or heart problems. She has her annual wellness check-up on Thursday and I plan to bring this up to the doctor (she turns 4 tomorrow), but in the meantime...has anyone come across something like this? And did it mean anything?
