Have You Ever Listened What your Hands Say ??????

///////*****This is an article which I have learned  through internet , and I have briefed  the symptoms in my own words which are originally explained by a Clinical Professor of Dermatology David E. Bank, MD, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia in New York City.

You might have been seeing your hands every single day , but when is the last time you really paid attention to watch what they are really ought to say ????
You might have been moisturizing them all the time but have you take your time to look keenly to point out any unusual because our body is an amazing mechanical machine which shows up signs if something is wrong or ill inside .
Shaking or scaly or itchy or dry  hands or brittle nails digital  a  red signal to stop and watch out your health !!!!!

Shaking Hands :
If your hands are shaking uncontrollably, it might be a sign that you may have consumed too much caffeine or there might have been a side effects to some drugs  like asthma or anti depressants . In some  rare cases this is a sign of Parkinson's  a rare nerve disorder disease .

Cracked or Delicate Nails:

If your nails are brittle and easily cracked like a fancy wine glass you might be suffering from Zinc deficiency , so, consider adding Zinc rich foods in your diet which help for growth and renewal of new skin cells . Try infusing wheat germ , nuts, oats and meat .

Peeling or Flaky Skin:
If the skin near the finger nails is flaky all of a sudden or you develop  a  cracking skin near the skin surrounding nails you might have been suffering from vitamin B deficiency .B vitamins such as niacin (B3) and biotin (vitamin B7) are extra important for healthy skin.
Taking a biotin supplement helps to promote healthy skin and nail growth; niacin helps protect and repair skin by preventing the formation of melanin, boosting collagen growth, and improving your skin’s natural moisture barrier.
In addition to taking a supplement, add niacin-rich foods such as fish, peanuts, and mushrooms, and biotin-rich foods such as avocados and tuna, to your diet.

Dryness or Itchiness Or Rash :
If it feels like no lotion is ever a match for your rough hands, you may have eczema, a skin condition that makes skin itchy, dry, or break out in rashes. Speak to your physician and see if you might need a prescription-strength ointment or cream to help restore your skin. If your doc determines that you don’t have eczema and that your hands are simply dry, use rich moisturizers that contain vitamin A.

Repeated hand washing, which can dry your hands, and then touching paper and other harsh materials all day long, will doubly dry them out.Also apply vitamin E to cuticles at night. Because we don’t wash our hands while we sleep, these products will have a good amount of time to penetrate into your skin.

Pale Or White Nail Beds:
 This is a indication of anemia which means your intake of food is not sufficient to produce  healthy RBC to carry adequate oxygen to your tissues.Take a blood test if results pops out anemia , go for iron supplements which can do the deed for you , but a proper medical help is insisted if using iron supplements.

Blue Finger tips:
Fingertips that change in color from white to blue to red can signal Raynaud’s syndrome. This condition causes coldness of the fingers and toes and can be accompanied by pain, numbness and tingling.
 Experts believe Raynaud’s occurs due to a spasm of blood vessels and decreased circulation, but the cause remains unknown. The best treatment: wearing gloves, taking prescribed medication, and avoiding emotional stress, smoking, and exposure to cold temperatures.

Flexible Nails: 
You might be thinking flexible nails are healthy but if your nails are flexible they indicate protein and calcium deficiency .One of the signs of hypocalcemia—low calcium—can be brittle nails or dry scaly skin and coarse hair.
Protein deficiencies can present as nail ridges as well. Be sure you eat a diet rich in dairy products as well as sardines and spinach. If that doesn’t help, see your doc.

A Dark Pigmented Streak :
If you see a dark streak in your nail bed, seek medical help immediately,the mark can indicate an early melanoma, but know that this type of nail bed skin cancer is quite rare—it accounts for just 1 to 3% of all cases of melanoma, according to one Italian study. 
Tip: always remove nail polish before a doctor’s appointment so your nails can be thoroughly evaluated by an expert.

Brown Spots:
You probably might have seen these spots on Old people hands . These are age and liver spots, which are directly caused by sun exposure. Hands are extra-prone to sun damage since they absorb additional UV-rays from their position on the steering wheel when you’re driving.
So be sure to slather a high SPF on your hands when you know you’ll be exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
