    I've noticed that on 2 of my finger nails (on the actual nailbed) I have white spots? Do you girls know what this is from?
    I remember a long time ago reading somewhere that it is some sort of deficiency, but I just don't remember what kind of deficiency?
    Maybe it's something I can fix with a supplement?

    Thanks for your time!

      I think it is a zinc defiency, but sometimes I get them as bruises too, but if you have a couple, I'd say try some zinc

        I thought it was calcium - i used to get them all the time haven't had them for a while because i drink loads of milk - just paint your nails lol

          Hmm, I get them too... have for years and years. I drink milk every morning. I never really knew what they were though on my fingers.

            my mom always said it was a calcium deficiency... I used to get them, but I cant remember seeing them in a while and I can't remember the last time I had a dairy product.

              K... I'm a geek and searched online. It can be a zinc deficiency, injury (tapping nails to hard, manicure, etc), or caused by nail biting or nail picking.

                Thanks for looking that up! It totally makes sense because I have milk every morning when I wake up and I eat a huge bowl of vanilla ice cream w/brownies before I go to bed. That's EVERY morning & evening!
                --I am planning on cutting out the ice cream & brownies soon!--
                With that said, I'm pretty sure I don't lack calcium.

                The zinc though, that's a possibility!

                  I asked my DH and he said it's a deficiency in either calcium or zinc and can be caused by minor trama like a pp poster said.

                      The girl that does my nails said that it's from trauma. Like hitting your finger somewhere.
