It started in both my index fingers. This whitish color. Normally your fingernails are pinkish, but they were just almost completely white. I left it alone for awhile, about two weeks, and then finally told my dad. He laughed and said its just your fingernails without even a glance in my direction (literally. he didn't even look at me when i said this). So i continued on for another week and finally told my mom. By this point both my thumbs had gained the whiteness. She said it wasn't anything to worry about. Now my middle fingers and pinkies are turning white and my ring fingers are taking on a whitish tone. I do not know what the ***l is going on, but it sure isn't normal.
