Homeopathy Medicine for Nail Spot


Leukonychia is a very common and completely harmless condition where white lines or dots appear on your finger or toenails. Having these spots is probably not a sign of a serious medical condition because many healthy adults have them at some point in their lives.

The white spots may affect one nail or more, and they may appear on the nail in different ways for different people. For some, the white spots may be small dots scattered across the nail, while for others, they may be larger and cover the entire nail.

The most frequent cause of leukonychia is injury to the nail bed, which can happen if you pinch or strike your nail or finger, use gel or acrylic nails frequently, get frequent manicures and pedicures, and several other factors may also be to blame for the unusual spots on the nails.

Causes of Leukonychia

There are numerous problems that can result in white spots or dots on your nails, including the following.

  • allergic reaction
  • fungal infection
  • nail injury
  • mineral deficiency

Allergic reaction

White spots on your nails can result from a number of things, including acrylic or gel nail use, which can seriously harm your nails, and allergies to nail polish, gloss, hardeners, or polish remover.


The first indication of an infection may be a few tiny white dots on the toenails, which are caused by a common nail fungus called white superficial onychomycosis.

Toenails may start out flaky and then turn thick and brittle as the infection progresses and penetrates the nail bed.

Injury to the nail

White spots or dots can appear on your fingernail as it grows as a result of a wound at the base, but because fingernails grow slowly, you might not remember the wound for up to four weeks.

Nail injuries are frequently caused by the following:

  • closing a door with your fingers
  • using a hammer to strike your finger
  • rubbing a desk or counter with your fingernails

The pressure used by the manicurist while giving you a manicure may harm the nail beds, resulting in damage that shows up as these white spots on your nails.

Mineral deficiency

The deficiencies most frequently associated with this problem are zinc deficiency and calcium deficiency, which can cause white spots or streaks along your nails if you are deficient in those nutrients.

Additional causes

White nail spots are less frequently caused by the following:

  • heart disease
  • bad health
  • renal (kidney) failure
  • psoriasis or eczema
  • pneumonia
  • arsenic poisoning

Your doctor will likely examine a variety of other conditions if you have persistent white spots on your nails before considering these more severe issues, even though these causes are theoretically possible but extremely uncommon.

Symptoms of Leukonychia

There are numerous ways that white spots can manifest themselves, including:

  • tiny pen-point–sized dots
  • the nail has more pronounced “lines”
  • larger individual dots

The appearance of the white dots or lines may differ on each nail depending on the reason why they are there. A nail injury may result in a large dot in the center of the nail, while an allergic reaction may result in numerous dots spread out over the nail.
