What are discoloured nails?
Discolouration of the toenails is a problem which affects part or all of the nail in some cases making it appear abnormal and unsightly.
What are the causes of discoloured nails?
Nail discolouration is a common complaint in podiatry and in the majority of cases is of no concern. A nail can become discoloured due to various different factors including;
- Bruising under the nail
- Fungal nail
- Poorly fitting footwear that causes damage to the nail
- Certain medications
- Nicotine in cigarettes
How are discoloured nails treated in podiatry?
The type of treatment used by a podiatrist to manage a case of discoloured nails will depend on the individual. Some patients will be advised to let the nail grow out and others will be offered treatments such as:
- Antifungal medications
- Shoe inserts
- Nail surgery
- Nail reconstruction
- PACT® med fungal nail therapy
- Footwear advice
- Lacuna method for fungal nails
Discoloured nails can be an indication of certain conditions or infection and it is therefore important that the nail is assessed by a podiatrist who will advise the best course of action.
