Yellow toenails: the causes
Several factors can cause discoloured or yellow toenails. It can be due to the thickening of the nails caused by pressure from our shoes, a hematoma, a nail varnish that keeps them from breathing, or a fungus. The thickening of the nail may be the result of a change in nail growth. However, there are other factors that may influence the appearance of a yellowing toenail such as age, illness or diet. Choosing the right footwear is also very important. Leather shoes are a good choice, for example, as they let your feet breathe.
