NAIL FUNGUS

Fungal nail infections commonly known as Nail Fungus can be treated in a variety of ways, topically, orally, or with medicated nail polish and in some rare cases by surgery.

What are the symptoms of Nail Fungus?

You may have nail fungus if one or more of your nails are:

    • Thickened
    • Have whitish to yellow-brown discoloration
    • Brittle, crumbly or ragged
    • Distorted in shape
    • A dark color, caused by debris building up under your nail
    • Smelling slightly foul

    Nail fungus can affect fingernails, but it’s more common in toenails.

  • What are the risk factors of Nail Fungus?

  • Being older, owing to reduced blood flow, more years of exposure to fungi and slower growing nails
  • Sweating heavily
  • Having a history of athlete’s foot
  • Walking barefoot in damp communal areas, such as swimming pools, gyms and shower rooms
  • Having a minor skin or nail injury or a skin condition, such as psoriasis
