What is it?
Proper name: Onychomycosis.
When tiny fungus spores enter small cuts on the foot or nail, fungus grows in the affected area.
What is the Cause?
Fungal infections are often contracted in gyms, showers, swimming pools, and anywhere else warm and damp.
Prevention is the best form of treatment but if you do get a fungal infection on your nails, you should get treatment as soon as possible. Common treatments include antifungal creams or oral medications.
