Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi! It's me again in a long time. A while ago I noticed that the middle fingertip on my right hand starts to turn a sort of Greyish-blue color often when I'm taking a shower. At times when my anxiety is greater, I see a little bit of grey by the white dome shaped part. Anything I should worry about? Is this normal? Especially for a kid of my age (17)?


Hi Man,

Blue/gray would normally tend to indicate that the tissue isn't receiving enough oxygen.  The question is, why when you take a shower?  Is something obstructing the blood flow?

You really should mention this to your doctor.  It's easy enough for them to tell if it is a circulation problem.  They can put a pulse-oximeter onto your finger and see what happens.

Keep us posted, good luck.
