Patient :My husband woke up this morning and noticed that his fingernails were glowing in the dark. We looked at mine and they were not. Is this something I should worry about or does this happen normally from time to time?
Thank you for your question. There are no medically related conditions or diseases associated with your husband's nails. It is possible that this could have been caused by contact with chemicals or materials such as paint which glow in the dark.
