Fingernails red

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernails red

nail

Nail biting is a main cause of acute paronychia, a type of infection in which bacteria get underneath the tissue at the side of the nail and cause swelling and irritation. On the other hand, a subungual hematoma appears dark red under the nail. Nail injuries can be noticeable until the damaged nail grows out, which usually in about two months. If it persists, it is best that you have him examined by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.

I'm a 50 year old woman and my fingernails have begun to curl as they get longer?
So for a while now I have had thin red lines near the tips of my fingernails under the nail accompanied by a little lack of color beneath the lines. This is most prominent in my thumbs. The color in my fingernails seems to be slightly darker than normal and maybe a little purple tinged. When I extend my fingers, the color leaves the front half of them. I have no idea what this is and my doctor didn't seem to know either.
My fingernails are detaching from the skin and I have red spots, I'm assuming its a fungus but I'm not sure. Please tell me if this is the problem and how do I treat it?
My children's fingernails and toenails are staring to come off from the top of the nail down. The part by the cuticle seems to come off and there is a new nail underneath, so in time, the kids can lift up the nail and just peel off. What is this???
Third possibility is of psoriasis. The inflammatory skin condition, it shows up as red, scaly patches on the skin and can also affect the skin cells in the nails. I sincerely advise you to consult a dermatologist as treatment modalities for all are different and so a confirmatory diagnosis has to be made first. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
One and a half month ago, I overexercised (went running a lot more than I was used to) and when I finished, my fingernails were purple/blue. Since then, they have remained purple. A week after that I started developing many other symptoms which I'm quite sure have to do something with that. I went through several tests including EKG, echocardiogram, xray, spirometry, CT scan and blood work. All came back normal. My fingernails had never changed their colour before that incident.
Hi, occasionally my finger tips go a very dark purple along with my fingernails, with the middle finger going white as skin looks just after it has been under pressure. The fingers do not feel cold, but feel slightly numb, but when I put them to my face I feel that they are freezing cold. I've heard that this is bad circulation, but I'd like to know if I should be worried at all or if there's anything I can do. http://img377.imageshack.us/my.php?image=hand1mp5.jpg http://img294.imageshack.
The arterioles clamp down when cold is present causing blanching first, then the bluish discoloration. Once circulation returns, the affected digits turn red and often itch and hurt. I know this because I have had Raynaud's since my teen years. It is fairly common in young females. I notice that you are on beta-blockers. They have a tendency to constrict the vessels in my fingers as well.
A due to sleep apnea and an echo to rule out heart problems that may be causing blue toenails/fingernails. The cyanotic episodes started before he was dx w/sleep apnea and I thought it would resolve after the T&A as they only occurred when waking in morning or after a nap but following the surgery he had a hard time keeping sats up even with 50% oxygen (O2 sat at 90-92%) and if no oxygen thay would drop to 78-80%. It took 4L O2 via cannula to get him to 98%!

The bottom part of my nails are red/purple, then there is a white strip, and at the very top there is a tiny red/purple bit. It looks like they are all bruised. I havent injured my fingers or my hands, and putting them in hot or cold water doesn't make my nails go back to a normal colour. I noticed them yesterday. Also, I am a 19 year old female if that is relevant. I'm just wondering what could be wrong with them. Thanks in advance.
i got horizontal ridges on both toenails, as well as on my fingernails but barely noticeable. im not sure how long i have these but i discovered it late last year and it seem to be deteriorating. i cut my nails on a regular basis but it seem to not go away. what does this mean? pls help. tnx.
how can I cure fungi in my fingernails? This is how it all started. Several years ago, I massaged my brothers foot with my bare hands without any gloves or cream. Several weeks or months later I don't recall exactly, I notice that my skin was cracking, my fingernails had white stuff inside and I said what is going on. Well, years past by and every 3 to 6 months my skin close my fingernail opens up and it hurts like crazy and I can't do anything when that happens.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Red color nails could be due to heart disease, high blood pressure, possible brain hemorrhage, stroke, carbon monoxide poisoning or even due to chronic lung disease. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Do not delay investigations. Take care!
I have been getting small, red, painful bumps on my fingers recently. I only get one at a time. They started about 3 weeks ago. They can show up and disappear, in the same day. They are usually gone when I wake up. I have been told it could be stressed related or viral. Does anyone has any solutions? Please help!! Thank you!
Hi Everyone, Does anybody out there have red palms? Mostly starting from under your little finger to bottom of palm the reddest part, but really the whole palm looks mottled. I looked it up and I got two answers. One said "extreme liver damage" and the other said "hormones upset by liver damage" My liver biopsy said Grade-2, Stage 1, with no necrotic hepatocytes. Slight fibrous portal expansion.It says lots more but didn't want to bore the **** out of everybody.
I've recently developed very similar symptoms as all of you have described (splotchy red palms, darkened indentation on the skin, wrinkling fingers, etc). They are normal when they're raised above the head or when I lie down. My family physician and neurologist are still baffling. I'm hoping I would find some answers here. Thanks all!

I do have Raynauds, and my nail colors are changing. My lunulas (halfmoons) on both thumbs are red. I was on Prednisone for 1 week and my last pill was a week ago. The lunulas changed prob yesterday. Could this be a cause? Just looking for feedback. There are other reasons for a red lunula, which are quite scary. Thank you!
At the edge of the fingernail(the head, not the tip of the finger) the skin has become inflamed and red and a part of it looks like a blister that's popped. Neither one complains of pain or itching in the area. I have been soaking them in hot water and mild soap and then applying Neosporin and bandages. It doesn't look like there's been any improvement, at least not yet. We started this Monday afternoon. Could it be that we are not soaking long enough or often enough? What could it be?
Over the last 1-2 weeks I've noticed the ends of all my fingertips slowly turning red.... only on the top side of my hands, the side with the fingernails.... My fingernails are healthy and growing/normal, but the skin surrounding the nail is very red.... I also can add that my hands are ALWA:YS cold, and I have had a tingly feeling in my fingertips a few times, only in a few fingers, it went away after a minute or two.....
I get these little red bumps on my hands and fingers every once in a while. They are never clustered, I may get one on and hand or finger and then next week get another one on the other hand or finger. They hurt when touched. They usually disappear after a week or so. What could this be? Thanks!
What are these red, tender bumps the size of a pencil eraser on the tops of my knuckles on my fingers adjacent to the bed of my fingernails. I have assumed they were arthritic in nature. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/243275'>Bumps on backs of hands, knuckles</a>.
For the past several weeks, I've had a small, raised, red bump on my scrotum that has itched immensely. Last night it grew double in size and I noticed another similar one a few centimeters away, which is smaller. There's no pain or anything. It has not blistered nor has it popped. It doesn't burn. It just itches a lot! The area is red from the scratching, I think. Does anyone know what this is and what I can do? The link below provides a pic I posted in the dermatology forum. http://www.
I would send a picture but I don't see where you do that. It is slightly red but even the area around it is also red...like dry skin..dishpan hands. It doesn't itch but when pressed on it feels like a splinter and is a little sore.
I'm not sure anyone can relate but about a week or so ago I noticed two little red bumps on my finger. I thought I got a splinter or something because when I touched them they were sore. Eventually they went away but I keep having little red bumps appear on my other fingers and palms of my hands. I have no idea what they are. Does anyone have any experience with this or know what they could be? Thanks.
