Home treatment

For cases of yellowed nails that are not caused by an underlying condition, there are some simple at-home treatments to improve the overall appearance of your nails:

  • Bathe your feet in a mixture of warm water and apple cider vinegar for 10-15 minutes, twice a week, to help reduce the yellow tint.
  • Scrub your nails with a gentle nail file and apply a nourishing moisturizer daily to support the overall health of your nails.
  • Let your nails “breathe” by avoiding nail polish and other harsh chemicals for a few weeks.

Medical consultation

If there is a suspicion of an underlying disease or if home treatments do not produce results, it is essential to consult a doctor for specific follow-up. Depending on the cause of your yellow nails, your doctor may prescribe:

  • Oral or topical antifungals to treat onychomycosis.
  • Anti-inflammatory medications for psoriasis.
  • Treatment for blood circulation problems.
