    Dark Lunula on Big Toe

    The large toe on my left foot has a noticeably darker lunula than on the my right foot. It is only on the one toe, but has been present for at least a few months now.

    Reading online has been a little scary, as it says "Red lunulae are seen in cardiac failure, COPD, cirrhosis, chronic urticaria, psoriasis, and carbon monoxide poisoning". However I'm 30 years old in-shape female without any other symptoms or indications of health issues, so I'm thinking (hoping) these aren't the only causes. I eat healthy, exercise regularly, recently had blood work that indicated everything was fine and I feel great across the board.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Do you have any idea what the cause might be? I have a photo but can't post a picture in the forum. The self-diagnosing online has scared me quite a bit so I'm hoping someone can provide any insight.

    For reference, the image on the left of this picture is similar to what I'm seeing
