If your toenail is brown or yellow, is thicker than normal, or has white flaky patches, you probably have a fungal nail infection. The fungus normally affects a small part of the toenail at first and it is only when the weeks and months pass by, and the toenail looks more and more unhealthy, that you realise you have a problem. If you don’t treat the infected toenail as soon as possible the infection can spread further over the whole toenail and then into your other nails. Without treatment the toenail will not get better on its own.
So if you think you have a fungal toenail infection watch this excellent Scholl video below. If you want to cure your fungal toenail infection see Part 2 – Help my toenail has gone brown and thick about an exciting new Scholl product – Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment.
