Toenails turning white/peeling off

My two middle toenails' top layers have turned white and peeled off with no pain. Now the toenail next to my little toe is turning white. So far, the nails on my hands are fine. What could be causing this to happen to my toenails? How can I stop it from happening to my other nails? Do I need to see a doctor?

BTW, I have been getting pedicures for months from the same lady, who sanitizes her equipment. Should I lay off the pedicures for a while?

I would lay off the pedicures for a while; you may have developed a yeast (candida) infection in your nails. Even if the technician sanitizes her implements, she may not have properly disinfected the foot spa between clients.

I woukld see your physician to rule out candida.
