Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Nail discoloration, in which the nails appear white, yellow, or greenish, can result from different infections and conditions of the skin.  Specific color changes in the nails can be suggestive of diabetes or of liver, kidney, heart, or lung conditions. This is why doctors pay specific attention to nails during a routine physical examination.  That's why is important to see your doctor and have him examine you first, before trying to treat this condition on your own.

Here are some resources for you
