    Yellow, brittle, painful toe nails I'm only 29!

    Hello there (Marti?),
    Please please could you help. I've had a problem with my toesnails which started about 3 years ago now and has increased to the point where I'm getting upset to be honest. I can't get my feet out in the summer, and now its spread to my fingers, its horrible.

    I'm very healthy and eat well, I'm sure it cannot be a vitamin deficiency!

    My two big toes are the worst; they're yellow and brittle towards the last half, with the area towards the cuticle looking quite pink and sore. 3 tests at the doctors have come back NOT fungal! All my toes are affected and I have to put layers and layers of nail varnish on to cover it up. By my big toes are also sore with it. I have to wear shoes that are too big so that they don't touch my nails. Even my slippers hurt and summer canvas pumps are a no no.

    My fingers have been affected for about a year now. Not as yellow by far, but I'm sure they will go that way. They are brittle and flake, have white flaking at the ends yellower towards the middle and the area towards the cubical looks pink, but not in a normal healthy pink way, in a sign of infection type of way, sore.

    I wear nail varnish on my fingers every day, but because of the flaking, I have to re-apply every day! I have a full time job and two children, its so hard to maintain!

    Please please please advise! This is unbearable!
    Thank you so much in advance
    Rosie x

    No, no yellow fingers, I probably only have 10 cigarettes a week at most!

    Hi have you had your thyroid checked? Also a complete blood work up? Something has to be causing it. Cathy

    Hi Cathy, after doing some research and the samples coming back as non fungal, I asked the doctor to do some blood tests. They all came back fine. Its so frustrating! But thank you for your input x

    You know what? I bet if you went to one of those (or a couple) nail places those ladies may be able to help you figure it out.

    Or what about a dermatologist? Cathy
