There's brown spot on left side of my thumbnail its UNDER my skin, for me visually it looks like it would be separate kind of tissue.

But It doesn't not hurt on it's own, nor if I apply pressure.

This is a fungal infection of nail bed, there is nothing to worry about. I would advise you to use terbinafine cream twice a day for 14 days atleast. There is nothing to worry about. Clean you feet daily and keep them dry.

Should I be concerned about it, that it might develop in more serious issue?

No, abviously not. Take this medication and it will be fine.

Alright, thank you very much for your answer! I will be visiting Podiatrist this Friday, lately had multiple issues with right thumbnail, this one just appeared very recently.

That's good. Can you kindly rate this consult 5, it would be highly appreciated.

Customer: replied 18 days ago.
Before I do that, I just wanted to clarify one thing, the reason I got this infection is because I presumably did not wash my feet good enough?

Or kept them dry enough
