Need help: Whay you describe is onychauxis, which is a very thickened, dystrophic nail. Very commonly, the pinky toenail develops this by repeated trauma over time.

Both my pinky toenails are curling if I use fungus cream will they grow straight again? And when i try to cut them down they feel like comming off
Pinky nails curling: If your pinky (baby) toenails are curling, they may not retain their normal pink & glossy appearance (they have fungus). Using fungus cream is not as effective as using an antifungal solution or lacquer, i.e. Mycocide, penlac, (ciclopirox) formula 3, genadur, fungifoam, & so on. Cutting your nails is appropriate, if they feel like coming off, it is b/c of the nails, not b/c of your cuttting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Either way, one must remove or reduce the shoe pressure by changing the shoe fit or style or one must remove the typically enlarged boney surface. You decide. I would try chinging shoes. ...Read more
