These nails are discoloured yellow/brown or white and may be thickened. They are often crumbly, and may have a mild yeasty odour. They are seldom a problem other than the esthetic factor, and can be very difficult to treat. Simple thickened toe nails are often misdiagnosed as being fungal. Proper diagnosis is essential.
Treatments: They range depending on severity or personal preference. See your Chiropodist for treatment options.
