Crusty, thickened yellow toenails are a telltale sign of a fungal nail infection – and it’s important to get them checked out and treated quickly, as the infection can spread and be notoriously stubborn. “Fungal nails cause dramatic visual changes, which can be unsightly,” says podiatrist Tony Gavin, founder of Osgo. “They can make the nail change color, thicken, and break more easily.” They can also cause more pressure on the end of the toe and become painful. “As the fungal infection progresses, they can produce a very distinct odor too,” adds Gavin.

The good news is that fungal nail infections are treatable – although more severe infections may take a while to disappear completely. “There are a variety of treatments, but success depends upon an appropriate plan. Medication needs to act on the affected areas, which can be difficult with topical preparations. A podiatrist may thin down a fungal nail or introduce very small holes into the nail and apply an anti-fungal medication,” says Gavin.
