Nail irregularity

A deep line dividing my toenail in 2halves has been reoccurring. It needs to be cut as the nail grows out. Since 3 months there is no line but the right side of my right toenail and left of the left one have a patch of white dead nail that instead of growing out is increasing towards the cuticle.

Hi
what you are describing sounds like a fungal infection of the toe nail. Please meet a dermatologist so they can perform a simple test from the nail cutting to check for fungus. If positive, they would advise you on oral antifungal medicines
