Fungal infection of the nails / onychomycosis
Lack of nutrients such as calcium and protein
Post use of chemicals such as nail polish

For the time being if there are no complaints, you don't need to worry just yet. However, if the nail spots recur, or there are other changes in the nails such as brittle, dull, bent, and easily broken nails, you should check with your doctor directly so that you can be sure there is a medical problem that causes complaints to your nails. If there are certain medical conditions, the doctor can provide more optimal treatment for you.

Cut nails regularly
