I have had discolored (yellow) toenails for 4 or 5 years. They were only discolored towards the outer half of the nail and clear by my nail bed. Went to the podiatrist the other day to get an ingrown nail fixed and he told me it wasn't fungus (like I had thought) but that dyes from certain shoes can cause discoloration when nails constantly are tapping the shoe. He grinded the top of the nail down (can be done with a regular nail file as well) to show clean, normal colored nails below. Can't believe I wasted so much time with various treatments when all I needed was a nail file. Make sure yours is really fungus cause it may be way simpler.
