Be sure it's fungus: You should have your nails cultured by a podiatrist to confirm it is actually fungus. Other conditions can cause darkening and thickening of nails and some, like melanoma, are very serious. Also, how long was Lamisil (terbinafine) treatment?

Likely fungal toe infection, wasn't discolored yet, but the nail was elevated & was easy to cut it back to the nailbedding. No pain. Will nailgrow bk?
Fungal nails: Fungus is very difficult to get out of the toenails. The fungus discolors, thickens, and changes the over-all shape of the nails. It can stunt the growth of the nails. Unfortunately, cutting the infected portion, or total removal of the nail does not usually get rid of the fungus. Topical and oral therapies are the only way to get rid of nail fungus.

To create a nail sample, how much "nail" do I need here? I have been asked to give a nail sample and don't know much "nail" I am supposed to give. It is for some fungus growing on the nail. Is it just literally a few small pieces and shavings of the nail?
Typically : Typically when I am taking a nail clipping to send to the lab for examination, i remove as much as i can without hurting the patient. For example, i try to get a good thick sample from the edge of nail back to where the nail is more attached (i.E kind of like a good nail clipping when one is cutting back typical nail growth). The key is to get a sample that has the debris that is under the nail since the fungal elements will be found in this part of the clipping. However, i would recommend that the physician perform this with the proper instrumentation since thick nails are very difficult to cut safely with ordinary nail clippers. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
