In brief: Fingernail red spots

Hello LDang, I hope you're well.
I will right to the point. There is nothing good that causes redspots under your nails, also called 'splinter hemorrhages'. It could be just psoriasis or nail trauma but it could also be heart failure or an infection. I recommend having it checked by your doctor as soon as you can. Good luck to you.
