Hello ladies and gents.. I’m concerned of my big toe nail. I have a spot on it and I haven’t injured it or anything recently and I want your opinion on what it is? It’s brown-yellowish with what looks like red capillaries

     It could be a toenail fungus. On the other hand it could be a skin condition. Hopefully it's not anything as serious as cancer, but you never know. Good luck!

    It sounds like a tiny burst blood vessel under the nail and is called a splinter haemorrhage.   If you dont get any more of these then this is probably a "one off" but if you notice them occurring frequently then you should see your doctor for advice...it could be a sign of an underlying condition, Check your toenails at least once a week.
