Why Are My Toenails Discolored?

By    |   Wednesday, 19 Jun 2013 11:10 AM

Question: My toenails are dark. I have tried several creams and nothing has helped. I keep my toenails painted with polish. What can I do?

Dr. Hibberd’s answer:
 
Dark nails most often are absorbing the discoloration from dye in your shoes. Sometimes a fungal infection is present, and can be checked by testing a nail trimming.
 
Trauma and injury can also darken a nail as will cancer. So be sure to be examined by your family doctor to identify the cause.
