A male asked:
I : I would see a dermatologist who can hopefully pinpoint the exact cause of your rash. It could be intertrigo, fungal, eczema, psoriasis (inverse type), allergy, or several other possibilities. A skin scraping or biopsy can help if it isn't clear to the dermatologist. In the meantime, powders and keeping good the breast supported can help. Learn more about some of these conditions on the link below. I hope that helps!
A 48-year-old female asked:
Probably : Probably the most likely is fungal infections but many conditions can cause thickening of the toenail(s) such as eczema, psoriasis, chronic trauma, and fungal infections to name a few. This is difficult without seeing the nail itself. I would typically evaluate the nail for its characteristics such as color and texture of the nail to help make a diagnosis. Often, i will take a sample of the nail for culture to see if there is any fungal infection and sometimes perform a nail clipping for biopsy if the diagnosis remains elusive. I hope this helps a little.
