Not fungus: Vertical streaks in the nails is not indicator of fungus. This may be extra pigment going from your skin to the nails, which is harmless and not treatable. The yellow discoloration may be from a vitamin deficiency which may clear with OTC Biotin. See your doctor before starting any supplements.
