    Q. Ever noticed white spots on your nails? How do we get them?

    Ans. The white spots on our nails are called leukonychia. These are very common and are not caused by any calcium deficiency. Most of the times these are caused by some injury to the matrix of nails. Just like a bruise appears sometime after the injury to skin, the white spots also take few days to appear after an injury that we may have probably forgotten about. These spots can also be a sign of some fungal infection in the nail bed or any allergic reaction to some products, like nail polish or nail polish remover.
