Hello, just wondering if I'm the only one in the world suffering with horizontal cracked toe nails, that actually split. Ouch, very painful, especially when its your little toe and in a shoe!! Anyone know how to cure this problem by first treating the nail bed, as that is where the problem actually stems from.

Hi marylin,

You may have a fungus. Have a foot doctor check it out.

Good Luck,

Faded Rose,

P.S. Please let us know what caused it and what the doctor said.
