white spots on my nailbeds???

Recommended Posts

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?doh.gif

 

Thanks for your time!

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!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
