Ever wonder what causes those white spots to form on the surface of your fingernails/toenails?
I was looking down at my hand today and noticed that I had 2 white spots on my fingernails and I was curious what causes them.
I had heard several wise tales from vitamin deficiencies, to good luck spots. And I got curious about what the real causes were.
I thought some of you might be interested as well so I went on a search and found in the second or third google search item:
So there you have it, if you've ever been curious about it, now you know. And so do I!In most cases, no. While there are many reasons for these white spots (called leukonychia), most of them are due to mild trauma -- such as hitting or slamming your fingernail on or into something -- and there's usually little cause for worry. The good news is they'll simply grow out with time.
