anyways, the corner of my big toenail turned light brown and I am not sure what it is? i don't know if its from my nail polish...I've takin it off now...or maybe i hurt my toe,maybe even toenail fungus...i did scrapsome powder looking stuff underneat...but the I trimmed my nail down ands started to use listerine and vinegar mixed tongether...then I NOTICED THE BROWN SPOT GOT A BIT BIGGER...and I i do remember stubbing my toe on that side after taking the corner of my nail off. I don't know what to use if this is fungus .....I feel gross

Re: corner of big toenail turned light brown

Nail fungus us characterized by nail plate thickening, separation, yellowing and apparent thick, wet debris under the nail plate. Pseudomonas bacterial infectionis characterized by nail plate separation, no apparent debris, and the discoloration turns from light yellow to green to brown to black. I suspect Pseudomonas. You will want to see your podiatrist. Do not reapply polish. Keep the area clean and dry - alcohol or peroxide would be better than Listerine. The stain will remain even after the infection is 'dead' and will grow out with the nail plate.
