I have a a dark, blue-brown irregular patch on the exterior aspect of the nail bed on the third to of my left foot.  I just noticed it about 3 days ago.  There is no striation and no direct trauma that I can remember.  Please advise.

Hi Knewman79,  I would absolutely go see either a general practicioner or a dermatologist, don't delay.  Hopefully it is something benign.  I just saw a podiatrist upon the recommendation of my GP today after having discolorations on my big toe for many months now.  I really wish I'd gone to the doctor in the summer when I first noticed something.  I thought it was from trauma or a fungus.  Probably isn't, it's being biopsied.  Again, don't delay and wait anything out.
