About couple weeks ago, I noticed that my son's index finger was white underneath the fingernail, at the top where his cuticle was. I didn't think much of it, and thought he just probably got his finger caught somewhere. Then just recently, his fingernail came off...but only from the cuticle to the middle of his fingernail. So not all of it came off.
Then over the weekend, I noticed that one of his big toe also has the same thing happening!! So now I think it's more then what i thought it was. So now i am extremely worried! He doesn't seem to have any other symptoms..no fevers, no rash, eating normally and an active boy.
I don't know what could be the cause of this. Has anyone dealt with this before or have an idea??
Is it possible it's a fungal infection? I really don't know. It sounds like an injury to me, but it's weird that it would happen twice in a row like that... and injuries usually turn black. I've had one, and my son has had one. Both times, the nail was eventually lost. It took about 12 months to completely heal.
