orange color in fingernails...

My fingernails have an orange color especially at the sides and near the cuticle. I never use nail polish but it looks like I had some on and tried to remove it but didn't get it all off. My fingers and nails do not hurt and are otherwise healthy looking. Is this orange color anything that I should be concerned about? Thanks, Barby.

Re: orange color in fingernails...

You may have 'yellow nail syndrome' which does not necessarily mean the the nail is even in color, but it can be deeper yellow, or more orange in areas. Check out the link below, then please see your dermatologist. Any change in thenail plate is a cause for concern as the nails (and hair) are a direct reflection of our inner health.
