I have developed very deep horizontal rideges in both of my big toes.. The left foot , has a full black toenail for nearly two months and has developed this riges. I assumed it meanyt the nail would fall off. I had no injury to neither toes, they hurt when I press on them both. The right foot has a slight discoloration but also has the same deep ridge. I live in Fla. and spend most of the time in open shoes
