My nails are becoming black in the corner, how to remove this?
Hello, my nails are becoming black in the corner, how to remove this? I have no pain. But it smells very bad. Should I go to see a doctor? I have no idea. Please help me with your suggestion.
@nilabjo Toenails are naturally white in color. Sometimes discolorations can occur from nail polish, nutritional deficiencies, infection, or trauma. Black toenails are attributed to a variety of causes, some of which resolve on their own. If your nail doesn’t get better, you’ll need to see your doctor to rule out a more serious cause of black toenail. A black toenail may be caused by:
An underlying medical condition: This may include anemia, diabetes, heart disease, or kidney disease.
Fungal infections: While these often look white or yellow, fungal infections can sometimes cause black toenails from debris buildup. Your toenails are especially vulnerable to fungal infections because they thrive on moist and warm environments.
Melanoma: This is the most serious type of skin cancer, which often appears as a dark brown misshapen spot. Such spots can also occur underneath nail beds.
Trauma: Usually caused by an injury, trauma to the toenail can cause the blood vessels beneath a nail to break. The resulting bleeding underneath the nail appears black.
