Nail Fungus Treatment

What is Nail Fungus?

Nail fungus, Onychomycosis, also known as onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection that starts as a white or yellow spot just below the tip of an individual’s fingernails or toenails.

As the nail fungus infection gets deeper into the nail, it can cause discoloration of the nail color, thickening of the nail, and splitting or disintegration of the edges of the nail. Nail fungus can be limited to a single nail or affect multiple nails at the same time. If the fungal infection on the nails expands and infects the toes and the area between the toes and the feet, this condition is called athlete’s foot or athlete’s foot, or tinea pedis. It is common in people with conditions that affect the immune system, such as nail fungus.

Normally, in a healthy individual, if the condition is mild and the fungal infection is not bothering the individual, treatment may not be necessary. However, in cases where the individual experiences pain or thickening of the nail, healthy hygiene habits, self-care measures and scientific and medical nail fungus medications available in pharmacies can help clear the infection. However, nail fungus can often recur even in cases where treatment is successful.
