NAILS, DEFORMITY IN, WITH DISCOLORATION AND THICKENING: DESCRIPTION AND POSSIBLE MEDICAL PROBLEMS

If you're a woman who enjoys wearing polish on your nails, you probably think that your nails look ugly, even a bit anemic, when they're bare. There may be a few spots here and there, some discolored parts, and even a thickened area or two. Thank goodness for nail polish, you may say, since you can cover up those ugly spots.
If you notice spots, discolorations, or areas that have thickened on your nails, you actually shouldn't be wearing polish at all. You may have a fungal infection, which, in some cases, is caused by wearing nail polish, since the nail isn't able to breathe. One tiny fungus spore can attach to the keratin—the protein your nail is made from—of your nail when it's uncovered, and from there multiply and eat away at your nail until the entire nail is affected. If you polish over the fungal spore, it doesn't die but, in essence, becomes trapped with all of that lovely keratin from which it can make an excellent meal!
