What is Toenail Fungus?

Toenail fungus, formally known as onychomycosis, isn’t pretty. It’s an infection of the toenail, fingernail or skin under the nail. Yeasts, molds or fungi can cause a fungal infection. In most cases, fungi comes in direct contact with the toenail through nail clippers, public showers or pools or nail injury, and fungi thrives in warm, moist places. 

If a patient leaves toenail fungus untreated, it can spread, causing more noticeable symptoms: darkened, yellow or white toenail, thicker or brittle nail. In severe cases, the nail may split from the nail bed. Toenail fungus is hard to get rid of—it can reoccur over time. Before an infection gets worse, a patient should seek professional care. 

Common Toenail Fungus Treatments

To combat toenail fungus, there are common at-home and prescribed treatments. Depending on the severity of the toenail fungus, treatment options will vary. For mild to moderate toenail fungus, topical and oral antifungal treatments can often provide dramatic improvement in the shape and appearance of the toenail.  Once the fungus is eliminated, thick nails become thin again.
