    Yellow nails, image attached

    I noticed this week I had stained tip of both thumbnails. Took polish off tonight and saw this. There are some slight tinges on other nails but worse in this.

    I feel panicked for the first time in a few weeks. I've read about how yellow nails are symptoms of some cancers.

    I did have a curry last Friday but have and always do wear nail polish so not sure it would stain through? I'm so scared right nw.

    Yes it looks like staining of some sort to me.

    I'm genuinely panicked. Tried to talk to my partner and he went in a mood at me so just crying on my own. It's horrible when I'm trying to beat this anxiety then a new symptom appears.

    Unless you give your nails a break, nail polish will definitely tinge your nails yellow. I'm in the process of giving my toenails a break from polish because it happened to them. Without polish you can see how the new growth is a healthy color and there's a line of demarcation where the yellow stain is.

    Maybe not talk to your partner about every little thing (that most take in their stride) ... have you told him you have HA and what you are doing to try and overcome it?

    I've always always worn polish and this is first time I've seen this yellow stain. Is it looking fungal like? It's on the other thumb and a little on a few others.

    It’s staining. Even if it was fungus, which it’s not, no big deal. There is treatment for that.

    Turmeric being what turns curry yellow may be it?

    Wise Monkey, I have yes. We've been together since it started pretty much. So he's seen and heard it all which I know gets annoying and frustrating but I can't help the panic I feel.

    Antsy, I think so too but I may go pharmacy just in case. Working in a busy shop and looking after my child I don't want to risk it
