So i recently went to the podiatrist because it seems as though my big toes have fungus. He gave me some good news: he doubts it is fungus because what I have is uneven texture and discoloring of my nail, which is superficial and fungus is not superficial, but it starts underneath.

He gave me a prescription, which is a nail gel called Urea. You put it on like a nail polish twice a day. Well I have been following doctors orders. There's only one problem: when the gel dries, it turns my toe nails white and crusty. It washes right off with water but why do they turn white? Is that a sign that the gel is working?

Any help would be great!!
