Ram’s horn

Ram’s horn is a nail disease that causes one side of the nail to grow faster than the other. The nickname for this disease is ram’s horn nails because the nails are thick and curvy, like horns or claws. It often grows over the toe top. In the cavities, waste is formed under the nail plate that can accumulate and harden. These cavities are also an ideal breeding ground for fungus.

Possible causes of the Ram’s horn nails are:
– Pressure on the nail over an extended period, usually from poorly fitted shoes
– reduced blood flow to the legs and feet
– failure to cut toenails for extended periods of time
