Podiatrists, such as Dr. Marshall Baer of Victoria, are more concerned with improper summer footwear than the toenails. And as for toenails, Baer said a big cause of discoloration or curling can be traced to allowing them to grow too long. When toenails become too long, or are not properly maintained, they can be subjected to repeated pressure applications, or “microtraumas” inside a shoe such as when the toes are jammed into the toe.

“Repetitive micro-trauma injuries are the No. 1 cause of toenails to become discolored,” said Baer. “I see that all the time in my practice. A patient comes in and says ‘My GP says this is a fungus.’ I look at it and say ‘This is not a fungus, this is wear and tear on the toenail.’ ” The repetitive stress can also cause the toenail to lift off the nail bed and cause a painful blister underneath.
