The Cause Of The Finger Nails Blackish Purple?
Good evening, I want to ask about my fingernails how come they turn blackish purple over time, continue to be accompanied by tightness in the chest, please tell me what are the symptoms, then how to deal with it
Although they may seem trivial, nails can provide a lot of information about a person's health. Although medical conditions cannot be fully assessed by the nails, at least changes in the nails to be different than usual can give a picture of a person's health condition. Nails are normally pink in color because they are traversed by blood vessels containing oxygenated blood. Nails that are blue to blackish purple in color can indicate blood clots under the nails, such as after a pinch, or a wound under the nail. Nails can also be bluish in color when the body is deprived of oxygen, so the blood flowing under the nails is less oxygenated blood. This condition is known as hypoxemia, where the oxygen level in the blood is low. One other condition that often accompanies this is a problem in the respiratory system such as shortness of breath. However, the shortness of breath that you feel could be caused by other factors such as ulcers, or psychological problems. We recommend that you check your medical condition directly with your doctor if the symptoms you feel are really significant or feel bothersome. Here we attach an article about diseases of the nails. May be useful.
