Thick Toenails

Hi Doc,

I have very thick toenails which is extremely difficult to cut and looks horrible.

What is the cause of this and how can I rectify this problem?

Many THanks, Denise

Chronic fungal infections can cause severe thickening of the toenails. Chronic skin diseases, like psoriasis can also cause this. I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for nail clippings, to determine the spesific cause. Treatment will be for at least six months and can be expensive.
