Re: i have dark patches on my toes does this mean i have a fungal infection

Dark patches are not classic for nail fungus, but they are for Pseudomonas bacterial infection as well as hematoma and nail psoriasis. If the dark spots look like tiny drops of oil and the nail plate is covered with tiny pin-dot depressions, then it could be nail psoriasis. If the spots started our greenish, then turned brown to black, then it is pseudomonas bacteria. If they are the result of wearing too-tight shoes, shoes that are very pointy, or you have recently begun a sports regimin, then they could be hematoma.
