Hi there,
A clinical examination is important for confirming the exact cause of your symptoms. The common causes of white spots on tongue are oral thrush, lichen planus, leucoplakia etc. White spots on the tongue can be seen after intake of overly acidic, spicy, or hot foods that irritate your taste bud .Canker sores due to extra stress, imbalanced hormones can lead to white spots on the tongue. Frequent wetting and drying of nails can lead to splitting of nails. Brittle nails may occur due to medical problems like thyroid problems, tuberculosis, Sjögren syndrome, and malnutrition. Skin diseases like lichen planus and psoriasis are other possibilities. Scaling of scalp could possibly be due to seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis. A clinical evaluation is important for correct diagnosis and management. I hope it helps.
Best wishes and kind regards!
