If your toenail is yellow or brown and thick, chances are you have a toenail fungus. If left untreated, your toenail can develop a secondary infection. Reducing the thickness of your nail can improve your course of treatment because it allows topical remedies to enter your nail. Use a debridement tool such as nail file to reduce toenail thickness. Follow up with topical remedies such as tea tree oil, Thieves oil, or Neem oil.*
File your thickened toenail when your nails are dry, twice a week. Rather than file across your nail, be sure to file over your nail to help manage thickness.
