Thickened Toenails

Thickened toenails can be caused by fungus or trauma (repetative or blunt injury). They can be unsightly and/or painful and can make footwear difficult to find. At West Berkshire Foot Clinic we can diagnose the cause of your thickened toenails and rule out fungus (through microbiology testing which is 97% accurate).


Unfortunately, thickened nails caused by trauma are damaged irreversibly. However, there are ways to manage them. At West Berkshire Foot Clinic, we will fully assess the cause of the problem, remove any repetitive cause of trauma to prevent further deterioration, and we can set up a management plan for maintaining the problem and preventing further issues (such as ingrowing toenails).

Cosmetic reconstruction

We now offer LCN Wilde-Pedique nail reconstruction. This can be left the natural colour applied or can be painted with nail varnish. As this product is non-porous you can remove the nail varnish with normal nail varnish remover without damaging the reconstructed nail structure. On toes these can last up to 4 months!

“Louise has been looking after my feet for several years. I first visited her with a problematic toenail which she was able to diagnose and treat where two other Chiropodists and a GP had failed. She is both professional and skilled. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.” October 2020

Speak to us today for an assessment, diagnosis and treatment plan for your thickened, discoloured nail/s.
