Nail fungus (onychomycosis) is most often seen as a white or yellow spot under the nail. Not to be confused with athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), which infects the areas between your toes and the skin of your feet. Nail fungus can also affect fingernails, but it is more common in toenails.
As the nail fungal infection progresses deeper, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken, and crumble at the edge. It can also affect several of your nails.
Not sure how you contracted a nail fungus infection? Here are some common causes:
- Sharing nail clippers with others
- Walking barefoot in public showers or locker rooms
- Visiting a nail salon that does not sterilize their instruments
- Not keeping your nails clean and dry
If your nail fungus is painful and has caused thickened nails, medications may help. But even if treatment is successful, nail fungus often returns. Here are some symptoms of nail fungus. It is time to take action if one or more of your nails are:
- Distorted in shape
- Brittle, crumbly, or ragged
- A dark color, caused by debris building up under your nail
- Whitish to yellow-brown discoloration
