My dr did not do a culture, he just looked at them - did not touch/examine them, but just said "you definitely do not have a fungus - that I know." If this was caused by shoes being too tight from years of wearing (which I haven't worn those type shoes in about 5-6 years now & I'm 56), why aren't all my toes bent sideways? Granted, my left big toe is slanted somewhat and some other toes are maybe slanted in the opposite direction and my 2 toes beside the big toe are not slanted - they are hammer toes though, especially the left one.
Previously, I asked if there were pictures and from the toenails growing sideways/slanted, do you think my toes will eventually turn more sideways?
