What Is Onychomycosis?
Onychomycosis or a fungal nail infection is a common condition that occurs from an overgrowth of fungus in the nail. It can affect specific parts of the nail, the entire nail, or spread to several other nails or the surrounding skin. An infected nail can appear discoloured (mostly yellow with white spots), oddly shaped, thicker than usual, and can be cracked or split easily.
What Are The Main Causes?
Fungi thrive best in environments that are warm and moist. Fungal infections most commonly affect the toenails, especially of those that frequently wear closed-toe shoes or socks for long periods of time. The fungi that cause jock itch, athlete's foot and ringworm can also cause nail infections.
It is important to know that fungal nail infection can easily spread through the sharing of footwear, communal showers and warm, moist, environments where the feet are constantly exposed.
