What Are Fungal Nails?
Fungus grows in dark and damp areas; so the feet and nails are the ideal grounds for it to grow. A fungal nail infection is very common and can spread very easily. Unfortunately it is very hard to treat when it is in the nail.
What You Might Experience:
- Brittle, thickened and discoloured (yellow and white patches) nails
- Affects a small amount of nail, however can spread to the whole nail including the nail bed of all toe.
How It Can Be Treated
They tend not to cause any pain therefore a lot of people will leave it alone however, as they become thicker and the fungus spreads then this is when treatment may be required. An appointment can be made with a foot health professional for a routine treatment to discuss treatment options to prevent the infection spreading or to help clear the infection.
