its the only one that is thick...why?---------If your nail look like the picture on this page: thick little toenail. then it is thickened without fungus, but thickened due to trauma.Now you may not have banged it in one big whack, but over many years, your little toe rotates when you stand on it and it pushes out.If it hits the outside of your shoes over many years it is classed as micro trauma. The nail thickens in response to this trauma because it is a normal body mechanism to stop itself from breaking. Unfortunately it doesn't go back to normal.
