Discolored Nails? Fungus May Not Be to Blame

Discolored Nails? Fungus May Not Be to Blame

“Micro-traumas” can happen to your toenails when they are not well maintained and subjected to repeated pressure. For example, toenails that are too long and then jammed inside of a shoe will not only hurt, but can eventually become discolored. In fact, repetitive micro-traumas are the number one cause of toenail discoloration.

Avoid micro-traumas by trimming your nails regularly. For a simple maintenance tip, remember that nails are always softer after a shower, so consider trimming yours after a hot wash.
