I have horizontal ridges on my finger nails and i'm being tested for lupus. Is that a sign of an autoimmune disease?
Probably not.: I've never seen lupus cause horizontal nail ridges, although i suppose it's possible. Certain medications can do it, as can diabetes and certain systemic diseases. If you're not on any medications, your doctor may wish to extend the workup to look for other internal causes, besides lupus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pure white toe nails w/ greenish yellow tint towards the top. I keep my toes clean & feet & don't let fungus build. I have lupus & Parkinson's? Issue?
White toe nail: The blood vessels under your nail in the nail bed is what gives your nails the pink color. The common cause of white nail is fungus or separation of the nail from the nail bed.
