Bent fingers since birth. What causes this?

Congenital

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
camptodactyly and clinodactyly are two types of bent finger deformities that occur during development in the womb. Treatment is rarely indicated. Most cases of camptodactyly are sporadic in occurrence. However, camptodactyly can be inherited. There is usually no improvement or progression of the deformity in 80% of individuals. See your doctor for a referral to a hand surgeon.

Dr. Ian H. Taras answered:

Why is my skin more dry since giving birth?

Dehydration

Sebum
If you are nursing (breast feeding) then you'll have increased water intake needs. During my wife's pregnancy we used to use a 5-gallon bottle of delivered water (you don't necessarily need special water, but it helps for this analogy) every 2 weeks. After she delivered and was nursing, we used 3 of those bottles every 2 weeks! Dehydration can lead to dry skin. There are also hormone shifts!

Reflux?

Labor_and_delivery
Babies" nasal cavities are particularly narrow and are prone to be obstructed. The most common cause is just air dryness that causes the mucus to dry up and obstruct the nose. Next, is the common cold. Your baby could have been born with an abnormality. Last but not least, babies who have reflux often vomit through the nose as well.
