Yeah it really was in the space of a few days, because I put nail polish on last weekend and it wasn't there. I put it on to cover the embarrassing discolouration as I was going swimming. Then after swimming the polish started to chip off and saw the black developing.
Is it weird though that the black started to develop in the same area where the yellow discolouration was? And as I said, I have no recollection of damaging or hurting my toe. I have no pain there.
Maybe it is that Runners toe you describe?
Should I go back to the doctor?
I still have the prescription of the anti fungal tablets that my doctor gave me a few months ago, but I had to stop taking them after about a week, because they made me feel SO nauseous. And I felt there was no way I could take them for 3-6 months, which is apparently how long it takes.
But then I read that subungual melanoma can takes years to develop and can often look like something else, e.g. fungal, that part is kind of in keeping with my story.
I actually didn't know that that's how Bob Marley died, I only knew it was C, not what type.
