Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Be careful while trimming the nails and start topical antifungals and oral as well and talk to a dermatologist as soon as possible.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
