Symptoms:  No symptons
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Will you be able to upload an image of what kind of pitting you're getting? Normally if one nail is involved, it's mostly a temporary manifestation. So do not worry.
But still, I would like to see the picture of the nail and give my opinion.

Feel free to discuss further,
Regards.
