    Mine are getting what looks like lines in them like they are cracking in a straight line. Also have both big toe nails are getting really deformed. I also have what looks like a redish and purple colour under the nails like bruises.

    We are prone to chronic infections and this does sound like it could be a fungus.

    It might be worth getting it checked out.

    Love, Mikie

    a fungal infection. Get some Vick's Vaporub (or the generic) and rub some into your nails twice a day. It works better than the prescription medicine and is MUCH cheaper. It takes 3 - 6 months to see improvement, as only the new growth will be affected.
