More about fungal nails

Onychomycosis is a fungal infection that affects the toenails or fingernails. It is a common condition and is often caused by dermatophytes, a group of fungi that can infect nails, skin, and hair. However, other types of fungi and yeast can also be responsible for onychomycosis.

The infection typically begins at the edge of the nail and may spread to the nail plate, causing discoloration, thickening, and distortion of the nail. Common symptoms of onychomycosis include:

  1. Discoloration: The infected nail may turn yellow, brown, or white.
  2. Thickening: The nail may become thickened and difficult to trim.
  3. Brittleness: Infected nails can become brittle and crumbly.
  4. Distortion: The shape of the nail may change, becoming distorted or misshapen.
  5. Separation: The nail may lift or separate from the nail bed.

Several risk factors contribute to the development of onychomycosis, including aging, a weakened immune system, poor circulation, trauma to the nail, and warm, moist environments (ideal for fungal growth). Fungi that cause onychomycosis are often present in environments such as public swimming pools, gyms, and shower rooms.

Treatment options for onychomycosis include topical antifungal medications, oral antifungal drugs, and in some cases, surgical removal of the infected nail. It’s important to consult with a podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan, as onychomycosis can be a persistent and challenging condition to treat.

” Onychomycosis treatment can be challenging. Relatively new nail infections are often easier to treat than those that have been present for many years. Most nails can be treated but may require different treatment options. Self-management at home is also an important part of treatment. At the Foot Clinic Aldershot, we will help you understand what causes nail infections and work with you to develop a treatment plan.”
