Fungal Nails

Onychomycosis is the name given for a fungal infection of the nails. This type of infection is very common in both fingernails and toenails, although, it is more frequently the toes that are affected as fungal organisms are attracted to dark and humid environments such as inside a shoe.

Fungal infections can cause the nails to thicken, discolour, deform, crumble and split. Often they are often of cosmetic concern as they are unsightly, and at times, painful.
