Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query and picture. The nails are showing evidence of fungal infection and the blackness may be r esult of this or due to a trauma, the history of which you have not given. It appears from the picture that you need to take antifungal treatment from your Doctor. Remember that it takes 1 year for toenails to grow, hence you have to continue treatment that long.
