Fungal Nail Infections: What They Are and How to Treat Them.

Learn about the symptoms, treatments, and prevention of fungal nail infections.

Onychomycosis, or fungal nail infections, is a common condition affecting millions worldwide. Fungi infiltrate the nail bed and grow beneath the nail, causing it to thicken, discolor, and become brittle. The following are the symptoms of fungal nail infections and how to treat them:


1. Nails that are thick, discolored, or brittle.

2. Nails with a distorted shape.

3. Nails that have grown apart from the nail bed.

4. A foul odor emanating from the infected nail.

5. Discomfort or pain in the affected toe.


Antifungal creams or ointments available over the counter: These can be applied directly to the affected nail to help clear up the infection.

Antifungal medication on prescription: If the infection is severe, your doctor may prescribe oral antifungal medication.

Laser treatment: This newer treatment option targets the fungus under the nail with a laser.

Surgical removal: In severe cases, the infected nail may be surgically removed.


Maintain clean and dry feet.

Put on breathable shoes and socks.

In public places, avoid walking barefoot.

Share no nail clippers or other personal items.

Maintain proper foot hygiene.

To summarize, fungal nail infections can be a frustrating and uncomfortable condition. Still, with the proper treatment and prevention measures, you can eliminate them and keep them from returning.
