    It's in your best interest to see a podiatrist and have a culture done to find out why your nails are abnormally thick.


    Your toenails can thicken for many reasons. These include an injury; skin conditions, such as psoriasis; tight or poorly fitting shoes; and fungal infections.


    Among these, a fungal nail infection — onychomycosis (on-i-ko-mi-KO-sis) — is the most common cause of thickened toenails.

    To trim overly thick nails, try these clippers.

    TIN SNIPS.. NO JOKE WHEN I HAD THE PRIVALEGE OF TAKING CARE OF MY FATHER IN LAW ,HE WAS A BIT ELDERY COULD'NT NO LONGER MAINTAIN HIMSELF. THE ONLY WAY WE COULD CUT HIS TOE NAILS WAS TIN SNIPS OR A GOOD SHARP PAIR OF WIRE CUTTERS

    You may want to see a dr. Many times when toe nails are very thick ppl have a fugal isssue. However toe nails do thinkin with age for some ppl.

    There are clippers made heavier and sort of a different way just for that purpose. I know I had to get some for my Mom before she passed away. I got them at Wal-Mart. Also I do not know if it is hereditery or just as we get older or some kind of deficiency, but I have that same problem too. And I have tried the prescriptions for that and it did not work plus did not like the long list of adverse reactions.

    Try a hedge clipper, LOL
