I am a 33 year old male. My weight is 64 kg and height is 5'5". I am having a peculiar problem, and upon a lot of research on the internet, I found out that it is a habit-tic deformity. I am having horizontal ripples on my right thumb since closely three years. I recently started observing the same in another finger. I had a bad habit of picking skin on fingers, biting and clipping off nails, but now I have stopped all those. Still, nail deformation is a problem for me.
