Hi all, I've had what I can only describe as bruises under my 2 big toenails, I eventually seen my doctor who told me to send clippings away to check for a fungal injection, phoned to see if the results were back today & it's come back clear! So I'm at a loss as to what this could be the receptionist said no further action was to be taken. I see my specialist nurse on weds but I thought I would see if anyone else has had anything similar. I hadn't dropped anything on my toes either. Gentle hugs michelle xxxx

  • Hi Michelle, I recently had a similar thing, my toenail on the toe next to the big toe went purple like a bruise, after about two weeks the nail fell off and I have a new nail underneath. I mentioned this to the Doctor when I saw him for something else, he had a look at the toe but couldn't say what the cause was as no sign of any fungal infection or injury and like you I had not dropped anything on it or knocked it. He wasn't at all concerned. Weird thing to happen though. Take care,

  • It could be just that, bruises. If so, you should report it to your rheumatology nurse/ consultant, because bruising can be a reaction to some of our meds, and should be checked our. M x

  • Hi, I've had this and lost my toe nail. I mentioned it to my podiatrist who observed that i curl my toe when i walk, probably trying to take pressure off my joint when walking (not conscientiously ). Could this be the cause? J xXx

  • Thankyou all for your replys will mention it tomorrow xx
