    White streaks on toenails(with photo)

    I have been trying to diagnose a condition on my toenails for over ten years, so far unsuccessfully. I first suspected it was fungus and was able to get my doctor to prescribe a course of oral lamisil, but this did not solve it. I then went through a progression of dermatologists, culminating with Dr. Fitzpatrick (who literally wrote the book on dermatology) running a fungus culture and saying "it is not fungus and I have no idea what it is". A couple of years later I noticed that my father has the exact same toenails. I have wondered if this may have been from nailbed damage caused by hiking boots. In case it is relevant, my fingernails are strong and healthy.

    Any ideas?
    Here is a ten year old picture, and my toenails look almost exactly the same now:
