About two months ago my fingernail developed a black mark near the nailbed. It has since continued up toward the top of the nail while changing brownish now puple with the uppermost tip is turning white. I have an appointment in October.It doesn't hurt and does not appear to look fungal according to my doctor. Is October to long to wait? I read that melanoma can develop under the nail.
org/user_photos/show/297557 They are clear white and look like fingernail material with a black root. They don't hurt, in fact, I don't even know I have one until my hand brushes against it. It feels like a brush bristle coming out of my skin and I hate that, so I tweeze them out (or get some brave roommate or boyfriend to do it.) Other than wanting them out, I don't stress about them. If it gets to the point where they happen more than rarely, I'll see a doctor.
This does occur often. Recently we notice that some of his fingernails is turning white from the end of his fingernail to the top. He is not showing an symptoms, or sickness. What is the cause of this?
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 blackening of the nails. Other causes are trauma to the nails, pseudomonas infection, diabetes or vascular causes. please get these causes ruled out from her doctor. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
On my left hand middle finger my nail has been turning white on the side of it. And now I can peel the skin under it away. The bottom half is starting to pit and peel, this has been going on for a few months now. What is going on with mt fingernail?
I'm glad you brought this up. I have that, too, with my fingernail beds sometimes turning really purple/blue. Also, I have the same thing that Sexybare mentioned about my fingers nd sometimes toes turn white and go numb. That freaks me out. Yes, please let us know what they say!
The infections cleared up on their own, but a few days later I noticed part of both of my nails were turning white at the cuticle. Then the white part of the nails seemed to start to separate from the cuticle area and slough off. Now on both of my fingers, about half of the nail is missing and there is only nail bed. I have been looking for nail to start growing on the missing portions where the infection had been, but nothing appears to have grown and it has been three months!
Have been lethargic, and sometimes I can't sleep, or I can sleep for an entire day. Have been told that I am turning almost narcoleptic. I have lost 25+ lbs in 6-7 weeks and it is still going. Symptoms are coming from some kind of fly/flea/gnat like insect (I think) that bites or burrows into skin, usually leaving a little bit of what kind of appears to be a split fishtail hanging out. Sometimes it appears feathery.
The vinegar test is very unreliable and I've heard of a lot of people finding out the wrong results i.e. it turning white when there was no HPV infection and vice versa. The only way you can be sure is if you get seen by a professional. Also in regards to the size of the presumed wart, it can be absolutely tiny or quite large depending on each person.
Remembering my hemorrhoid, I clenched up pretty tight not letting her stick any fingers in, but there was some play around the exterior. She may have got half a fingernail in. After this, I put on a robe, went back to the room, put on a condom and we had sex. Missionary, then her on top. I tried to refrain from any hip to hip contact, but that's nearly impossible. Aside from the enormous amount of guilt and shame from participating in this activity, I've managed to catch something.

You know you’ve peeled enough when you reach a pure white layer, the pure white layer is safe to touch, the light green layer means that the second skin covered in gue is still present. How did I learn this? Well today I peeled 3 courgettes, the first 2 I did wrong, but after noticing the unpleasant slime (which is still on my hand) I gave the third one a thorough peeling and removed it properly (not realising my hand had already been glued till later).
When I first noticed it last night, it was a big red bump, then when I looked today I noticed that the top of it was turning dark in the middle. It was not dimpled in the middle, rather just a big red bump. There is only one of these bumps, no cluster or any other sign of an STD. The "skin" of the bump (outside) was real shiny. I haven't seen any pictures on the Internet that look anything like it, so I can't figure out what it is.
I did the very same thing at that age - except for me, I scratched little scabby places in my nose. My parents kept that one fingernail cut REALLY REALLY short and that worked. She'll outgrow it.

Cold feet=(circulation trouble), fingernail deform=(iron disorder), urinary dysfunction=(male bhp), bowel dysfunction=(drug induced constipation), low back pain =(DDD and spondylosis), sexual dysfunction=(sphincter weakness)and so on. Various drugs and treatments didn't work (like Hytrin for bhp and Lactulose for constipation etc).
Turning blue usually means that blood circulation is not that great. I'd have his little heart checked out again. Good luck!
Of course after washing and messing with them, they always open into a sore and there they are... the white things The sores will not heal until all the white things are pulled out (usually with tweezers). When I finally went to the dermatoligists and told her this she looked at me like I was crazy. She could not tell me what they are and how to get rid of them. This last time I was sick when I broke up in several on the neck, face, & chest.

I have no titanium metal in my body (had one titanium dental pin removed, aand replace 5 gold caps with zirconium) and still watch my intake of titanium dioxide (white food coloring used to make skim milk white, food white; coat pills, etc). My right pleural effusion has dried up, but I remove about 250 ml/day on the left side, using the chemo port to drain it. I get the ascites drained at the hospital about every week (removing about 7 liters each time).
I was told I have a UTI and alot of white blood cells in urine. and to use bacitricin on the cut down there. Right after using a large amount of bacitricin I noticed a rash everywhere down there....taht was hours later... I have had many allergic reactions down there to even certain soaps and many other things like lotions. I went back to another hospital, i was told I have herpes. WIthout testing me for herpes they gave me a dose of some stuff and a very very painful shot in the butt.
it also feels sort of heavy, not numb or slightly tingling (not like pins and needles) but like i can feel something there. also when i stretch the skin i can see white spots behind it. what is it, and what can i do to treat it, tried moisturizing with Vaseline constantly, but doesn't help. Could this be a sign of lip cancer? any advice would help. thanks.
We put a big white paper(for kids to draw/paint) in my room for a while. Added a buzzlight(violet or blacklighted) and with his hi tek beam i swear we could see alot of **** in the air. They always go, with the story that there are alot of particles on the air. I know that, But i could see the difference from a fabric, dust or particle just floating really slow, and alot of ?¿?¿? flyign real fast, passing by.
I am big busted so it's not like I can really see under there easily, I just happened to feel it when I was lathering up. I was able to use my fingernail to scrape it and something dropped into the shower so I never saw what it was. There was, however, something black still stuck like deep down so I used tweezers and a pin (yes a pin lol) to dig at it to get it out. It didn't look like anything to me at all but it literally left just like a little hole in that area. A legit hole.
They usually don't move so you think they're just specks of dirt except if you disturb them, they will actually hop. You can see them on your white sheets. Disturb them with your fingernail and watch them hop. Lastly, I know it's difficult to sleep and you feel like you're losing your mind and you may even have thoughts of suicide, please know that there is an end to this and by all means be very careful about taking any prescription sleepaids. Addictive!!!!
I was playing on the Wii yesterday and out of no where I felt my finger tingle like it was swelling a few minutes later it was turning blue. I have been freaking out since then looking all over the internet. I thought I was havng a reaction to some new medicine I am taking but I went to their site and it is not listed as a side effect or reason to call Dr. Then my husband said maybe I popped a blood vessel. My hands are very cold for hours in the morning then by about 2pm they are fine.
Heck - I may even try turning upside down like someone else mentioned! Can't hurt, right?
Astroturf the color of my spots changes according to the background, ranging from almost black against white to bright white against dark. I don't seem to get any other colours, just shades of grey. The size and intensity does vary, however, without predictability. I'm really at a loss to explain it. If i had more intimate knowledge of the workings of the retina, I might be able to figure it out.
Osheroff, I haven't seen or heard of him in years, anyway he told me it was some type of a fungus or mold and gave me some white cream from a tube that he just happen to have in his office, he gave me some in a little container (so I don't know what the name of it was, now I wish I would have asked) and instructed me to apply some with a q-tip he handed me, immediatly the itching stopped, it was like a miracle, what a huge relief!
