We can try!: Toenail fungus is very common, and unfortunately very difficult to cure 100%. We can test the nail to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, and from there you have several options: topical or oral antifungal medications, laser nail treatment, or removal of the nail in severe cases. See your doctor to talk about which treatment is right for you. ...Read more

Not particularly: There are many purported home remedies but a fungal nail infeciton requires oral anti-fungal medication. First you need a proper diagnosis and then treatment.

Both could be right.: Trauma to the nail root can either temporarily or permanently cause a distortion of the nail plate. This distortion can often mimic a fungal nail infection. Having a fingernail that has a fungal infection is not as common as a toenail, especially on a 23 year old. You can settle the dilemma by having the nail tested for fungal spores. ...Read more
