nail color

Hello,
Healthy nails are colorless. Skin diseases like psoriasis and vitiligo can cause white spots on your nails. In psoriasis your nails might be deformed and pitted. In conditions like chronic kidney or liver disease the bottom half of the nails turn white, while the upper areas remain pink-to-clear. Fungal diseases of the nail can cause a yellowy hue, nails may appear thicker and become brittle.Aresenic poisoning, chemotherapeutic drugs can cause white bands or spots on the nails. These are only few possibilities. A complete history and clinical examination can help in detecting the exact cause. Do write to us again with more queries.
Take care and best regards!
