I'm having pain in my right big toe the same toe that was infected with fungus. Also, have smelly feet. Could I be getting it again?

Fungal Infection: Toenails infected with fungus tend to exhibit abnormal growth appearance, such as increased thickness and ingrown toenails. I would see your podiatrist to have the toenail debrided properly. If there is an ingrown toenail, it needs to be removed. ...Read more

If you have pain: I would suggest you see a podiatrist. They will be able to debride or cut down the toenail so that it should not hurt. Additionally, they may decide if appropriate to give you an oral medication or topical. A hole is not a good sign but difficult to comment as we don't see it. ...Read more

Nail on big toe is 2/3 detached. Negative for fungus but doc scripted Thymol anyway. It grows, I clip, been at least a yr. but no progress.

Hold everything..: There are many reasons for the nail to be detached from the nail bed (onycholysis). If a fungus was not detected, then there is no need to be applying thymol, unless there is a suspicion that the fungus is present, regardless of the fungal detection test. Take a series of photos of your nails growth to verify your suspicions. Be careful of aggressive pedicures. ...Read more

Son has one big toe nail that has fallen off & the other big toe nail is lifting.  No trauma, fungus ruled out, nail flat/spoon, ideas of course?

I will provide an : Idea, it is a little difficult without seeing the actual foot. I do believe that fungus and trauma are the most common causes. Trauma does not have to mean a heavy object fell on the toe. Repetitive micro trauma like a toe hitting the end of a shoe when running etc could be a cause, and nails can be negative for fungus due to false negatives. ...Read more

What can I use to get rid of toe fungus? It's only on my big toe. I've used vinegar and anti fungal cream from the store with little effect for weeks

They are quite safe except not to be used if you have hepatitis. Meanwhile, keep toenails short + ventillated. Never sleep in sox. ...Read more
