Toenail fungus is one of the most common, yet most ignored, health conditions. Too often, patients dismiss the signs of an infection, only to later realize that their toenails are in bad shape.
In today’s busy world, it’s easy to let a toenail fungus infection get out of control.
Onychomycosis is the most common cause of toenail fungus, affecting about 1 in 10 people. It usually starts as a small white or yellow spots on your toenails, but if left unchecked, it can severely damage them.
Toenail fungus infections are caused by a mold growing under the toenail. The most common type of mold is dermatophytes, which feeds on the keratin protein found in fingernails and toenails. A similar infection is also possible in fingernails, but toenail infections are far more common.
