Thanks for the query. This could be a fungal infection of the nails. other diagnosis is also feasible and a simple scraping will solve the doubts. Fungal infection is becoming an increasing problem due to rampant usage of antifungals. Please see a dermatologist as some extra medications are coprescribed many a times to treat. If needed a simple skin test can also be done. Dr MK Agarwala
