Hello,

I have white spots on my toe nails and it's quite ugly.
It's as if a line traces on the nail and it is all white.
Why is this happening?

Thank you
Hello
There are several reasons posted on line, but honestly to find out if you are lacking in vitamins or minerals you will need to visit your doctor for a blood test. However if you visit your beauticians and ask her to check out your toe nails she will be able to give you her opinion. Take care and good luck

Hello this could be a sign of anaemia get your blood checked and consume food rich in vitamins and minerals as well as iron.
You should avoid wearing nail varnish to see if it changes or else see a beautician in case you are having an infection.

Take care
