Blue line growing in thumb nail bed?

Post by sharpG »

I have a thin but very obviously blue line growing in thumb nail bed. I havent hurt it and it is growing with nail; visible from both sides.

I dont know when it started but i have been aware of it for over 6months.

Any ideas. I would post a picture of it but i cant figure out how to post a pic in the box here.. Any ideas?

Thanks

You can use something like a Photobucket account, or just upload it to Imageshack, and link it from there.

Sorry I had not seen this response sooner.

If it's not a trauma injury to the site, unless it was a casual thing, you didn't notice, you know like when someone gets pain and can't remember how, then other thoughts are, it could be caused by some kind of viral infection, vitamin or mineral toxicity / deficiency, or possible exposure to some kind of substance.
