What would be the reason for my toenails to be turning black. They are also becoming hollow underneath. What should I do?

In brief: Toenails

You probably have a fungus in your toemails.
Many therapies are out there but soaking them in vineger twice a day and using some tinactin (tolnaftate) spray may help.

In brief: Onychomycosis

Depending on your age it could be fungus on the toenail.
You should see your doctor who could get a scraping and send it to the lab to be analyzed.
