Fungal Toenails

Fungal toenails, also known as onychomycosis, is a common condition that affects the toenails and can cause thickening, discoloration, and brittleness of the nails. It is caused by a fungal infection and can be contracted in places such as public pools, gyms, and shower rooms. To treat fungal toenails, it is important to maintain proper hygiene by keeping the feet clean and dry, wearing appropriate footwear, and avoiding going barefoot in public places. Topical antifungal creams and oral antifungal medication can also be prescribed by a podiatrist to help clear up the infection. It's important to catch and treat fungal toenails early, to avoid further complications.
