In brief: Can be fungal

Bright white spots on the nail, almost appearing as if you sprinkled powdered sugar on it can be a superficial fungal infection.
If the nail is a normal thickness, this can be the one type of fungus that can respond to topical treatment.

In brief: Possible Infection

There are various types of infections.
Infections can be due to a fungus, bacterial or due to a virus. The treatment will depend on the type of infection and on what exactly is infected. Have it evaluated by a professional to get the appropriate treatment. By leaving it alone it may get worse.
