Nail fungus is a chronic condition that impacts your quality of life and can lead to serious health problems for those with diabetes or immune disorders.

Nail infections can start as a result of a family history of susceptibility, increasing age, poor health, nail trauma, warm or moist climates, exposure to infected nails in sports/fitness and communal bathing areas, and tight shoes.

Treatment of nail infection is difficult because the infection is under and inside of the nail, which makes it hard for other treatments to reach and destroy the infection. Treatments such as medicated nail polish or oral medications may be associated with side effects or serious drug interactions. Home remedies such as using bleach, vinegar, mouthwash, or household cleaners to resolve the problem are often tried but, ultimately, fail to resolve it.

Nail infection can cause permanent deformity of the nail, which can interfere with walking, participating in sports, and being able to wear shoes comfortably – not to mention the embarrassment from the way the nails look.

What are the signs and symptoms of nail fungus?

Yellow streaks in the skin under the nail, or nail bed, and on the underside of the nail.
Buildup of bits and pieces of skin and nail fragments under the nail.
Discolored and thickened nail that may separate from the skin under the nail.
Brittle, broken,and thickened nails.*
White spots or streaks on the nail surface.
Soft and powdery nail surface, which appear as the infection worsens.
Damaged, crumbly, and brown or gray nail surface, with no separation of the nail from the underlying skin.
