Pinky toe nail brittle w/ dark streak. Fourth nail flaky, thick, half unattached from nail bed. Big toe thick nail. Taupe or blueish nails. Both feet?

Different types.: If you catch hammertoes in the early stages, a small, in-office procedure to release one of the tendons will often allow the toe to lie straight again.

A Big Mosquito.: The idea of having an ingrown toenail removed will bring anxiety to most patients.
