I know I don't have a fungus, (I went to my doctor to confirm and he laughed when I told him I thought I had gangrene)..but I am too young to have feet like I do…some of my toe nails are a little darker then my regular toned toe nail…(I'm black so that you can get a picture of how it looks)….and also when i clip my toenails, they tend to be thick, but not brittle….its like thick and soft and when i inspect them..the nail has this little white scales on them…why is that…is the nasty or what…is there something I can do to get sexy, kissable feet like normal 24 yr olds?

It sounds like you have Hypertrophy (Onychauxis), it's the overgrowth of nails. Nails with this disorder are abnormally thick. The condition is usually caused by internal imbalance, infection, or heredity. You need to file the nail smooth and buff it with pumice powder. You can get pumice powder at your local beauty supply.

It could be a fungus and regular family doctors only know about skin problems in a general sense. instead of going through your doctor, ask to be referred to a Dermatologist.

You need to get on an oral antifungal like Sporonox or Lamisil ASAP.

This fungus can not be killed with topical meds

It's normal, but it could be fungus.
