    Purple Toenails

    My mom is always bugging me saying that there is something wrong because my toenails, mainly on the big toes, are somewhat purple, darker than my fingernails. Is this normal? I tried to look it up online, but there were so many things associated with it, and I don't have other side effects or anything. I'm in good health.

    One thing I could think of is that I do yoga and other floor exercises which put a lot of pressure on my toes. Could that be it?

    Any advice would be great. Should I see a doctor?
    ...and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

    Purple usually signifies a hematoma which could very well be associated with the pressure you put on the nails. If you are constantly bruising the nails, you may be performing the exercises wrong. I would see a podiatrist.
