Q
How do I know if I have a fungal nail?

A

Fungal nails are usually discolored, very yellow - maybe even brown.  At our office, we take a biopsy of a nail and send it to a dermatopathology lab where they perform analysis under a microscope and also several stains to assess for the presence of fungus. This also helps to determine what type of fungus is in the nail.
