Colour changing toenails

HI,

I have noticed over the last 4 or 5 days that the flesh under my toenails, and my fingernails but not so extreme, have turned a pinky/purple colour. I am asthmatic and worried that this could be the sign of something worse to come.

Do you have any ideas on what this could be?

Regards

Solvang

Dear Solvang
It can be a sign that your lungs are not getting enough oxygen. Please rather see your doctor for an examination and lung function test?
