    My daughter's big toe toenails grow lots of layers and are very thick. Her podiatrist tested for a fungus and that came back negative. She also tried Jublia with no change. She's 14 years old and hides her toenails all the time. She never wears flip flops or sandals. Help!

    The most likely reason is a fungal infection/tinea. There are a high % of false negatives for the testing.

    This sounds so much like my daughters big toenails, for years she’s had this problem and like you I’ve tried everything got samples tested came back negative for fungus , the doctor said she had excessive growth in her big toenails, anyway I brought her to A&E the doctors said they’ve never seen anything like that , she will have them both removed in two days time I’ll keep you updated with the results if you’d like ..
