  • Sound like you have fungus. You need to go to the doctor.

  • I have it. You need to go to a podiotrist (sp?). It is either hereditary(sp?) or it's caused by bacteria, simular to athletes foot. Mine is father has it and I didnt' get it until I was out of HS. I just keep them trimmed back as much as I can and keep them painted! I like to trim them when I get out of the shower so they're softer. I also file the tops down to make them less thick.

  • I would put athletes foot cream (also called antifungal ointment) on them before bed under socks, and keep the nails straight (filed neat) and painted.
