In reading about the symptoms, i ran across Terry nails, which made me look...

    I've had nail fungus since 2013. It started on my big toe and was minor with a change in the texture of the nail and white discolouration. I went to the docs to get it checked out and they took nail scrapings. The test for nail fungus was negative. The nail fungus then spread to a second toenail,...

  • Fingernail Fungus

    I have fingernail fungus and I know it can't really be cured but I am worried about it spreading to other nails etc. The only information I can seem to find is for toe nail fungus. Does anyone have any suggestions re preventative treatment for other nails. Thanks

  • Ingrown toenail removal left my nails looking terrible

    When I was a child, I had two ingrown toenails removed (one from each big toe). I believe the edges of the nail bed were removed because the nail on each big toe is not full and has never been since the surgery 20 year ago. This leaves me feeling self concious about my feet. Has anyone else experienced...

  • Black under both big toenails

    I noticed two blackish purple spots under the toenails on both my big toes, over the past couple of days they have gotten bigger. I don’t remember injuring my feet, my toes just tingle a bit. Should I get them checked out or am I just worrying about nothing?
