Onychomycosis/Nail Fungus

What is Onychomycosis / Nail Fungus?

Are you wearing a colorful nail polish? Not paying much attention to your nails? You are welcoming an unwelcome visitor: Nail Fungus.

Toenail fungus is an infection that gets in through cracks in your nail or cuts in your skin. It can make your toenail change color or get thicker. It can also hurt. Because toes are often warm and damp, fungus grows well there. Different kinds of fungi and sometimes yeast affect different parts of the nail. Left untreated, an infection could spread to other toenails, skin, or even your fingernails.

Symptoms and Complications

Nail fungus is a common disorder that leads to yellow or chalky white, brittle, cracked, and thick nails. Fungal nail infections, called onchomycosis, most often affect toenails. Infected nails are usually warped or oddly shaped. They can break easily. Sometimes a white dot shows up on the nail and then gets bigger. When fungus builds up under your nail, it can loosen and even separate the nail from the bed. The fungus can also spread to the skin around your nail.
