Psoriasis is a chronic skin problem can also affect your fingernails and toenails. When Psoriasis affects the nail matrix it can show up in different forms. It can show up as dents in the nail plate or separation from the nail bed. Discoloration can appear - a white spot known as leukonychia or even brown discoloration resembling a drop of oil. If you have psoriasis and you notice any of these symptoms on your nails be sure to mention it to your doctor!

 

Fungus is another reason that your nails may become discolored. An infection of nail fungus occurs when fungi infect one or more of your nails. A nail fungal infection may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges — an unsightly and potentially painful problem. An infection with nail fungus may be difficult to treat, and infections may recur. But medications are available to help clear up nail fungus. Maxx Nails has a couple over-the-counter medications to help with this. However, we always recommend that you visit your doctor for an official diagnoses.
