Discolored toenails are common. If you have one, don’t ignore it.
Yellow or white toenails usually indicates a form of fungus. Brown, purple, or black toenails often indicate a micro-injury leading to blood under the nail.
Although quite rare, a black toenail could indicate a type of cancer called melanoma.
Instead of using over-the-counter products and worrying about it, the best option is to get an accurate diagnosis.
Much money has been wasted self-treating the wrong condition.
Oh… and please don’t rely on Google.
We see discolored toenails in our office multiple times a day. It’s easy to diagnose and treat them.
A discolored toenail left untreated could become damaged for life.
