Nails Have White Spots And Tinge?
Good evening my doctor wants to ask, suddenly my nails have spots and yellowish white tinge and the edges of the nails look yellow on the ring finger of the left hand and sometimes it hurts when pressed sometimes isn’t it dangerous?
Hello Mutyara, Teirma, for the question.
How long have you felt this complaint? Do complaints that yellowing nail edges appear wider? Is the skin around the nail red or swollen?
The complaints you submit can be caused by:
fungal infections (onychomycosis)
Without a doctor's direct examination, it is impossible to ascertain the cause. Therefore, immediately consult your complaints with your doctor directly. In addition to asking about your complaints, your doctor also needs to do a direct check on your nails to make sure. After knowing the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment.
For now, you can periodically apply warm compresses to the affected area. Avoid walking outdoors barefoot. You are also advised to cut your nails well, not too short and parallel to the fingers.
Hopefully this information is useful.
