My big toenails have something wrong with them. Maybe a fungal infection, I’ve been burying my head in the sand about them as I’m too embarrassed to go to the podiatrist. They are cracked and have gone a slightly odd shape. The cuticle has also gone weird. I clean them as best I can and paint them. I’m scared of the podiatrist removing them etc. has anyone else been successfully treated for this kind of thing? I have no idea how they became this way. The only thing I can think of is using one of those cheap nail places for a pedicure. Perhaps I picked something up there.
Have an answer?
You don't need a podiatrist.
Try the anti fungal treatment and if there isn't an improvement get some antibiotics from the GP.
The sooner you treat it the best your chances are to keep your nails.
