NAILED it!

 My big toe used to grow a double toenail. As soon as it would grow out, it would start again. Many years ago, a doctor took pictures of it to publish in a medical paper. But now they seem to be more common. Don't believe me? Here are pictures of it in different growth stages.


What made me think of this now? Well, I went to my podiatrist yesterday, for the first time since Covid. I have fungus on NINE toes!! Phil has had it on one toenail formany years, and lost his entire nail several times. The doctors say that even if they remove your entire nail, it can still come back!

Hmmmm, I've had ingrown toenails, but never heard of two nails-in-one.

This is something new to me. I have heard of ingrown toenail but not double toenail. I think I too have fungus on my left food toenails. Need to check with the doctor.

My first toe is also spoilt...LOL... Due to the kicking against my hard table, the nail came off last time and it grew again but not as original anymore...

Ann said...

I've never heard of having a double toenail. That's quite interesting. I wonder what causes that?

Rose said...

I think they have good medications for toenail fungus now. Hopefully it works for you!

Wow, you are quite unusual. Hope they can take care of your fungus..my hubby has that on one of his toes too.
Our bodies are crazy things aren't they?

I have never heard of this before....did your dr ever have a diagnosis for this? or why it might happen? I do hope they can get the fungus taken care of....

That's really interesting!

I know it's really hard to get rid of fungus in nails.
Your double toenail is interesting!

Your double toe nail is interesting. My son Sam has curled toe nails!

Is it uncomfortable? I have never heard of that before seeing your photos.

This is something new I learned just now. I have horrible toes. About 12 years ago a podiatrist who was highly recommened (HA) took two of my toenails off. It was a horrible experience with much pain. On my final visit he pinched my big toe on my left foot. I was in so much pain my husband had to help me walk to our vehicle. I now have this hard lump all these years later. Oh, it is a long awful story. But I think you that is cool you were written in a medical book. I worked in the medical at UCHSC so I learned a lot of things. Thanks for sharing with us Ginny.
