What does it mean if half my nail is red other half white? Even if i push down on my nail it stays redish light brown. Almost like terry's nails
The red part : Usually the area closer/proximal to your trunk/body is receiving more blood flow than the outer (white) part. I won't worry about it. Go see ur pcp and get checked for blood pressure problems, anemia etc. Take care and enjoy life! http://www.M.Webmd.Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/features/what-your-nails-say-about-your-health. ...Read more

My pinky toe nail at the side is a little bit dark and not as white as the whole nail. what does this mean? fungi? if i cut it, it grows back the same
It may be fungus: But doesn't have to be, that little toe is often subjugated to trauma from shoe and all the microtrauma can cause thickening and slight discoloration. The only way to know the true etiology is to have a sample of the nail sent for pathology. (A podiatrist or dermatologist frequently do this.) ...Read more

Subungual Hematoma: You have a subungual hematoma. This is blood under the nail. A doctor can poke holes in the nail to drain the blood, but no treatment is really required. Just be aware that your toenail may fall off. If it does, new toenail will grow in 6-12 months. Hope this helps! I have included a picture for your reference. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Podiatrist: Sounds like a good reason to call your local podiatrist on monday. While this is not an emergency, ignoring this problem could lead to a really weird/deformed toenail replacing the injured nail. Infection is also much more common if you finish the job yourself. Best to have the expert guide you through this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Broken tooth no pain now the last tooth on the bottom left side of my mouth is broken looks like in half to the gum it doesn't hurt now but it did would it be better to just remove it or fix it i don't care either way i've never in my 25 years of life bee
Well, : Well, if you haven't been to the dentist in the last 25 years, now you have a reason to go. I do not recommend that you remove your own tooth. The dentist will do xrays and will determine the extent of damage before making the best medical recommendation. There can be serious repercussions from a badly fractured tooth that goes unrepaired. There are also issues with just pulling a tooth- because other teeth can shift into it's place. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can I have a new dental crown replaced? I have a crown that's a month old, and structurally it's fine, but i just don't like the way it looks. The shade isn't quite right, and i think the way it lines up with the rest of my teeth is a bit off. I don't kno
As : As dr scharf advised, it can be remade and should be made so that you are happy. Were you given a mirror to look at the crown before it was cemented in your mouth i always give my patients a mirror so that they can give me their approval. Before your dentist inserts your new crown, take a look and make sure you are happy. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
