What are Nails and hwy do we Have Nail?
IF YOU ARE LIKE ME, you don't think much about your nails. Perhaps you wonder how you can grow them longer, keep them from chipping, or whether they would look better painted a dark claret or a blush pink. However, you may not consider all the reasons why you have nails. In fact, fingernails and toenails serve several purposes: to support the tissues of the fingers and
toes, to safeguard the fingertips and the tips of the toes from injury, to assist us in picking up small objects, to help us manipulate objects, and, quite simply, for scratching.
Our nails are made up of several components, some of which are visible, some of which are not. What we see when we look at our nails is called the nail plate. A plate is hard, smooth, rectangular in shape,
and slightly convex.
If you have an infected nail, visit your GP for advice. If you need medical attention for a toenail, your GP may refer you to a chirotiodist.
Nails are translucent in colour, but they take on a faint pink cast thanks to the network of blood vessels located beneath them. This colour is variable. It may
become paler, for example when you are feeling cold and the blood vessels in your fingers and toes have constricted.
