11-Year-Old Boy`s Nails Not Growing
hi,my brother is 11 years old, he seems completely healthy but his nails are not growing. Should i need to be concerned over this.
With normal growth and development I cannot think of any reason slow growing nails should be a concern. Be mindful that nails can be worn down with certain activities and hidden nail biting is common.
