What is Toenail Fungus?
Nail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is an infection that is most commonly caused by a group of fungi called dermatophytes. They also cause conditions like ringworm and athlete’s foot. In some patients, the fungus can spread from their foot to the toenails or vice versa. Some molds and yeasts can also cause nail fungus. The condition is most common in adults over 40.
What are the Symptoms?
The earliest sign of nail fungus is a yellow or white spot under the tip of the affected nail. As the condition progresses, the patient can develop the following symptoms:
• Abnormally thick nails
• Brittle, ragged or crumbly nails
• Distorted shape
• Discolored nails that appear whitish or yellow-brown
• Abnormally darkened nails caused by debris accumulating under them
• A faint, but foul smell
Severe cases of nail fungus can be painful and permanently damage the nails. Nail fungus can also cause complications in people with weakened immune systems or diseases like diabetes or psoriasis.
