Hello and thank you for addressing your concern.

According to your statement, we believe a thorough clerking, investigation and examination needs to be done first in order to clearly understand what we are facing at the moment.

Let’s boost our health by having the right supplements. Here are a few viable options!

However, occasionally the symptoms faced by your mother may be caused by:

  • underlying condition such as
    • diabetes
    • heart disease
    • anemia
    • kidney disease
  • fungal infections
  • repetitive or blunt force trauma
  • melanoma
  • or merely pigmentation changes of skin underneath the nail

Need a second opinion from a specialist? Our Internal Medicine Specialists are here to help.

With that being said I hope you or your mother would take the extra initiative to contact our doctor using this link (DoctorOnCall) in order to maximise the help that you can get.
