What are fungal toenails?

Fungal toenails, or onycomycosis, is a common condition that can affect both the toenails and fingernails, and will affect about 10% of the population in their lifetime. While they can sometimes be painful, they are mostly a concern due to the unsightly appearance. Who want’s to have to hide their toenails due to fear of embarrasment?!

The organisms that cause fungal nail infections are the same ones that cause tinea (athletes foot) in the skin.
