Have you even noticed white dots on your nails? If you have, are you aware of their meaning? Namely, these dots are results of air bubbles under the nail.
They are known as leukonychia and occur due to minor injuries at the nail’s base. Moreover, these dots may also be inherited, but sometimes, they may be a sign of a more serious health issue.
Therefore, as soon as you notice these spots on your nails, you should immediately see a doctor as they may have been affected by eczema, psoriasis, warts or fungus (onychomycosis). Also, they may also be one of the 7 symptoms of sarcoidosis, which is a disease that affects the lungs, the skin, and other body organs.
