Fungal Nail Infection

Fungal nail infections, or onychomycosis, can affect either the fingernails or toenails but it is more commonly seen in the toenails. It can happen at any age but occurs more frequently in those over 60 years old. Fungi grow easily in warm, damp environments such as sweaty socks and trainers. Fungal nail infections can also occur secondary to athletes’ foot when the fungus moves from the feet into a crack in the nail. Fungal nail infections usually begin on the edge of the nail causing the nail to become discoloured and brittle and eventually breaking off, causing pain and swelling.
