Fungal toenail infection, could cause the affected toe to separate from the nail bed and have a deformed appearance. Your crumbly and thickened toenail can become difficult to trim and wearing covered shoes can become painfully uncomfortable.
Left untreated, the infection can even spread to other toenails and cause other problems like a tinea skin infection between your toes, which makes the infection harder to treat.
There are plenty of over-the-counter (OTC) topical antifungals on drugstore shelves, most of which promise more than they deliver. If you have especially thick nails and/or advanced signs of fungal infection (such as discoloration and texture changes), these OTC agents are unlikely to be beneficial no matter how long you use them.
You’ve probably tried oral medications too. While oral antifungals can often eliminate the fungus systemically, they are not right for everyone, either because of cost, side effects, or a personal aversion to pills.

Fungi called Dermatophytes live harmlessly on the skin. In a fungal infection these dermatophytes multiply if the conditions for them to thrive are just right, causing a huge increase in the incidence of dermatophytes. In fungal infections of the nail and skin the main dermatophytes involved are Trichophyton Rubrum and Trichophyton Interdigitale. Dermatophytes thrive in warm, dark, moist areas, which is why feet, shoes and socks are the perfect climate for them.
There are many factors that can increase your chances of developing a fungal infection, these include;
On the skin, Athletes foot can look like;
In the nails;
Podiatrists commonly diagnose fungal skin infections by assessing your symptoms and looking at the skin on your feet.
Nail fungal infections often require testing to confirm a diagnosis. We can test a sample of nail with 97% of accuracy.
It is important to get a confirmed diagnosis from a health professional. If you have a Diabetes or any condition affecting your immune system, it is essential you seek medical advice prior to treatment.
