Yucky Yellow Toenails

My big toenail is so thick and yellow-stained, I can't stand to walk around barefoot. Why is this happening?

There are two possible probs your tootsie may be suffering from: "You could have a fungal infection or just toe trauma caused by too-tight shoes or strenuous exercise. Unfortunately, not even your physician can tell the difference between the two without analyzing a sample from the nail. If the discoloration came about around the time you took up running or wearing very pointy shoes, it's more likely that toe trauma is the culprit," says Richard Scher, M.D., a nail specialist and professor of dermatology at Columbia University.

If your doctor determines you suffer from a foot fungus (lovely, huh?), he will prescribe either an approximately nine-month round of topical cream or three months of oral medication. Since it takes at least nine months for a toenail to grow out, regardless of what ails it, it'll be that long before your feet are ready for display.

Our temporary solution: Apply a base coat to prevent further discoloration, then paint on a dark, vampy polish to conceal your damaged dogs. We like Cover Girl CG Boundless Color Nail Polish in Plum Pudding, $3.39.
