On each of my toenails i have a patch of orange colouration to them, any idea what this could be?
Hello, There are two very important reasons for such type of orange discoloration of toe nails.If your nails have been hit or stubbed,then it can result in collection of blood underneath the toe nail resulting in orange color or it could be due to fungal infection.Consult a dermatologist for the diagnosis. Thanks
 
pls advice what medicine to take or ointment to apply for fungus in my toenail. thanks
Toe nail fungus are generally resistant to many topical creams. You can try flucanozole tablets once weekly for 8-12weeks along with clotrimazole creams three times daily. The colour of nail will not change and you can notice the difference when the new nail grows so please do not stop treatment inbetween. All the best Dr.Riyaz Sheriff
