The most likely cause of discoloration and itching of the nails is a fungal infection. ... Other possibilities would include an infection of the skin around the nail, which may appear red and inflamed and could be either fungal or bacterial in nature.
Silicea is an excellent homoeopathic remedy for fungus . I feel it is best recommended to patients who have very cold feet and palms. Their nails are infected and disfigured. The patient oozes bad smelling sweat from the feet, hands and armpits. It is also seen to be associated with a sharp pain in the finger and toe nails. The pain is unbearable and the patient seems to be very restless and irritable. Silicea can be given to patients in whom the nails grow inwards and are surrounded with flesh and pus.
