I recently was having some pain in my big toes and when I checked to look there was a pinkish color under the nail. When I looked a few days later a very dark purplish-blackish spot had developed under the nail of both of my big toes and in the exact location. It is under the nail toward the base near the second toe. I went to see a foot doctor and he feels that it might be mechanical but he wasn't sure. He said to wait a couple of months to see if it starts growing out. If it doesn't then he said we would have to look at some other options. There was no injury or trauma to either toe. It is very odd that it is on the exact location on each toe. Also, they still periodically hurt. Could a couple of visits to a tanning salon have caused this? I got a burn. I never go to a tanning salon, but went this time because of a wedding. I am usually not ever in the sun. I would apprectiate any suggestions. I would like to take care of this as soon as possible. I was thinking about going to a dermatologist. What do you think? Thank you for your help! L.L.
