    Question Purple under the finger nails??

    Last night i look at my finger nail they are purple, i ask Daniel to look at them and he said yes they are purple, i though it was because i was cold but today i woke up and they still purple,
    it never used to happen to me but all the sudden it is,

    What causes the skin under the finger nails to turn purple?
    How do you make it go away?

    What should i do? Should i worry about it?

    Thanks

    Either cold, or poor circulation due to some other problem. Or bruising, but that wouldn't be uniform on all your nails at the same time.

    Yep I get that too. I don't know what it is, just happens.
    I thought it could possibley be because I am anaemic... what's your iron levels like?

    Hi Lisa. Yes if you have been dieting to lose some weight before you get married. It could be you are low on Iron. Did you find out if you are pregnant? if you are, you will need iron.

    Poor circulation can cause it...due to lack of oxygen or blood to your fingertips.

    A good idea is to flex your fingertips to get the circulation going or raise your hands above your heart. Do you have a little squeegy ball you can squeeze? Like a stress ball? To get the circulatoin going?

    Might be an idea to check there are no underlying health problems lisa....
