Why do my toenails look grey?

Gray Nails

Toenails
One possible cause of blue-gray nail discoloration is using the drug minocycline. This broad-spectrum antibiotic has been found to turn nails a light blue-gray color. However, there are many other causes of nail discoloration as well, including fungal infection, chronic diseases and the use of various medications. Contact your doctor to get an accurate diagnosis.

Dr. Janet Kail answered:

Why are my toenails dark grey?

Could be fungus

Fungal_infection
It could be a fungal infection in the toenails. However, without seeing the toenails it is difficult to diagnose. I recommend you ask a podiatrist or dermatologist to examine the toenails.

How do you get ingrown toenails?

Two ways

Ingrown_toenail
Usually ingrown toenails form from a malformation of the toenail. It ends up that email is too wide for the nailbed, or the sides of the nail naturally curve in. This causes pressure and the potential for an ingrown toenail to form. Ingrown toenails, can also caused by improper trimming of the nails. If you think you have an ingrown toenail, be sure to visit your podiatrist.

How do you fix ingrown toenails?

Embedded nails

Open-uri20121116-14991-w7do3s
Misnomer of "ingrowing Toenails"...the nail margins are generally embedded into the skin and soft tissue and are continually irritated by activity in shoes.. Permanent partial or total nail removal is really the only solution for chronic and repeat infections. See you PCP or Podiatrist www.acfas.org
