Toe nail Fungus

A fungal nail infection is a common condition that can leave you with brittle, discolored nails, usually on your toes. Its formal name is onychomycosis, and it’s a lot like athlete’s foot. But instead of affecting the skin on the bottom of your feet or between your toes, it invades your nails. At first, you may only see a white or yellow spot under your nail. Over time, this spreads and can turn your whole nail white, yellow, green, or black. The nail may thicken and could be hard to trim, it may start to curl up or down or loosen from the nail bed. Your nail could become brittle and crumble when you touch it, you may notice a bad smell. You could be at risk for getting nail fungus if you have a weak immune system or ongoing health problems like diabetes, wear shoes that make your feet hot and sweaty, walk barefoot through gym showers, swimming pools, and locker rooms –places where fungus spreads easily, live with someone who has a fungal infection or have athlete’s foot, as the fungus that causes it can spread to your nails.
