    my little toenail is very dark-coloured. HELP!

    Hello everyone,

    I have a bad habit: i simply must cut my fingernails & toenails often; the part of the nail tat is white & for cutting (sorry but i dunno how else to describe it).

    For a very long time now (so long i forgot how long ago it started), my little toenail is dark (but not black) in colour, no white bits & is not the normal shape like other nails, a little curved/bent in nature. My other little toenail isn't like tat.

    wat do i do? leave it alone? it is not causing me any pain, i just simply cut & cut, with no chance of "normalness"..

    my other fingernails/toenails are fine, with half moons & cutting bits.

    can someone advice please? many thanks

    Could be a fungal infection... Have you seen a doctor?
