My toenails are thick and yellow - Do I have a fungus infection?

Toenail fungus (onychomycosis) is the most common cause of abnormally shaped and/or discolored toenails.  

Toenails infected with fungus often become thick, brittle and have crumbly or powdery debris on top or underneath the nail. Toenail fungus can also cause the nails to appear a variety of different colors including white, yellow, brown or sometimes even black.

If you think you have a toenail fungus delaying treatment will only make your infection worse. Prevent the spread of fungus to other areas of the foot by scheduling your complete foot exam today. Give us a call at (562) 433-0478.
