Skin issue, brown lines on cuticles

Does anyone know what could cause these brown lines at the cuticle and on the actual hand? Person has athletes foot, jock itch, and Versicolor. Also suffers from severe abdominal cramping and bloating frequently. based on my research online, the only instances I can find a brown lines on the hands and fingernails occurred in people who have parasitic infections. After contact, I am now getting the brown lines in (not under) my fingernails without injury. Also peeling between the fingers.

Check for lupus, dermatomyositis, or other auto-immune conditions. Also be sure your kidneys are working ok.

Hi and thanks for your question. Would you send photos to my message board?  I don't like opening links. Do you have any other symptoms other than the fingernail issue? This person that has several different symptoms may have more than one type of problem.  
Sorry, I clicked Send Message on your profile but there isn't a place to attach an image.
