Question thick skin under toe

hi, does anyone have any idea about having thick skin under toenails?
I have it only under 3 of them, the skin is at the end of the nail. and
all i've been able to do is to cut it away. thanks

Re: thick skin under toe

Sounds like a fungus to me. You shouldn't cut the skin away, see a doc and get the meds he prescribes for it, I have used some over the counter but sometimes they work and sometimes they don't, do you get pedicures? Sometimes those places have a ton of fungus in their equipment.
