When Are Yellow Toenails Cause for Concern?

Yellow ToenailsYellow toenails can affect anyone, but most people between the ages of 20-70 are most likely to experience them. Some common causes of yellow toenails include:

  • Fungal infections
  • Diabetes
  • Yellow nail syndrome
  • Lymphedema

In most cases, yellow toenails are caused by toenail fungus, which is influenced by personal habits: walking around barefoot in public places or wearing shoes made of non-breathable materials. Treatment for yellow toenails depends on their cause. If your yellow toenails are caused by a fungus, you will likely be prescribed an anti-fungal medication.

Yellow toenails don’t always indicate the presence of a medical condition. They can also be caused by things like nail polish stains and aging. FastMed can help you determine the cause of your yellow toenails and recommend the appropriate treatment.
