Which when I searched online came as BEAU LINE...KINDLY let me know what can be done for this...

Hi. Greetings. This usually occurs during a stage of relative stress for the body. Don't worry it goes away as the nail grows until it's completely shed. In case it recurs, see a qualified dermatologist near you. Or send in pics of the same for confirmation of diagnosis. Warm regards Dr Govind Suresh Mittal.
