Concerned about having white spots on your toes, fingernails or both? It's not uncommon, especially when your growing up. When I was growing up and I was in my teenage years, I used to have white spots on my finger nails and occasionally on my toenails. These came and went over time. Before I knew nothing about nail fungus and the early symptoms, I would blame it on a vitamin deficiency and simply ignored it.
And I was right, it was nothing more than something my body was missing as far as nutrition and vitamins. My mother would tell me, “you need to drink more milk because you have a calcium deficiency”. Was she right? Quite honestly I would not know because I paid little attention to what she said, I simply ignored it and they all went away.

White spots on your toenails and fingernails could also be a sign of a nail fungus infection. Our nails and toenails say a lot about our health, just like your eyes do. Many spots on your nails could mean the sunset of nail fungus and should be watched carefully. Are these white spots fading, disappearing over time or are you noticing more of them appearing? Do you feel rundown, tired or stressed? Do you feel you have a vitamin deficiency or simply do not know?
When in doubt, start by taking some vitamins to supplement your nutrition. Over the coming weeks take note of whether these spots are still there. If your condition continues to deteriorate, there are no signs that your condition is getting any better, seek medical advice but do not let it go. Letting it go is the worst thing you can do because if you are seeing and adjusting of early nail fungus symptoms its going to take that much longer to control it.
