Finger nail abnormality

Anybody ever develop white horizontal arcs on their fingernails? I believe these are Mees lines and I'm not sure if they are connected to a Crohn's ileitis flare I've been in since Feb or maybe the Entocort I started taking 3 weeks ago. My blood iron dropped to 7 in Feb but I don't feel anemic now.

  1. Hi ! Thanks for reaching out. One of our advocates wrote an article about How Crohn's Disease Affects Your Nails and I thought it would be a helpful read. I'm linking it here for you! https://inflammatoryboweldisease.net/living/crohns-nails I hope you find relief from your flare soon. Please feel free to reach out to us anytime. Sending you well wishes, Pam (team member)
