What is Onychomycosis?
Fungal foot infections. They can create major discomfort and even embarrassment. They are also EXTREMELY COMMON; affecting millions of people each year.
Additionally, fungus is easily spread. Individuals with fungus may have contracted it through shared bathroom space, public locker rooms, showers, and pools, shared clothing or shoes, even carpeting.
For some, fungus is simply genetic. When this is the case, treatment can become even more difficult given the likelihood of reoccurrence.
One of the most prevalent types of fungal foot infections directly affects your toenails. This type of condition is known as onychomycosis.
You may have onychomycosis if you notice any of the following symptoms:
- yellow or other discoloration of your toenails
- thickened or brittle toenails
- an unpleasant odor coming from the nail area
It’s not uncommon to feel discomfort and embarrassment due to the unsightly appearance and these symptoms of onychomycosis.
Fungal nail affects nearly 10% of the US population.
While many find the condition to be, simply, an eye sore, fungal nail can also lead to a larger problems incuding:
- infection of other toenails

Individuals with diabetes are also more susceptible to fungal nail given their compromised immune systems.
