Black toe nails
My boyfriends 2 big toenails have both turned black... there was no injury and the other toes are not affected?
What is the reason for this?
P.S. He suffers with smelly feet too.

Hennie, it might be due to a fungal infection or due to chronic trauma, but it is difficult to say without being able to see it first. The best would be to se your doctor and have it sorted out. Good luck.
