Nail Discolouration

Our nails are often forgotten about, but they are important and can reveal a lot about our overall health. One common concern that many individuals face is nail discolouration. Discoloured nails can be a cause for concern, but understanding the underlying causes, prevention methods, and available treatments can help to maintain healthy and beautiful nails.

  1. Fungal Infections: One of the most common culprits behind nail discoloration is fungal infections. These infections, often caused by dermatophytes, can lead to yellow, white, or even greenish nails, along with changes in texture and thickness.
  2. Trauma or Injury: Stubbing a toe or accidentally slamming a finger in a door can result in a bruised nail. This can cause a dark purple or blackish hue to develop under the nail due to the pooling of blood.
  3. Nail Polish Stains: Frequently applying dark-coloured nail polish without a base coat can cause the nails to become stained, resulting in temporary discolouration.
  4. Underlying Health Issues: Certain health conditions, such as psoriasis, thyroid disorders, or circulatory problems, can lead to changes in nail colour and texture.
  5. Medications: Some medications can cause nail discolouration as a side effect. Antimalarial drugs, for example, are known to cause a bluish tint to nails.
  6. Smoking: Smoking tobacco products can lead to a yellowing of the nails due to the nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes.
