Onychomycosis

Onychomycosis, or commonly known as nail fungus, is among the more common dermatology conditions that can occur at any age. Nail fungus is a common condition that affects both women and men of all ages. Microscopic organisms called dermatophyte fungus, sometimes yeasts and molds, enter your skin through tiny cuts or the separation between your nail and nail bed. It begins as a yellow or white spot underneath the tip of the toenail or fingernail. As the fungal infection becomes deeper, the nail may begin to get discolored or may thicken and crack at the edge. The condition can impact multiple nails at the same time. The symptoms that are associated with nail fungus include:

  • brittleness
  • crumbling of the outside edges of the nail
  • loosening or lifting of the nail
  • thickening of the nail
  • white or yellow streaks on the side of the nail

Treating Onychomycosis (Nail Fungus)

Nail fungus may require treatment from a dermatologist if the condition is painful and has led to thickened nails. In some cases, the problem may recur even if the treatment is successful. Fortunately, nail fungus is a preventable issue. To help avoid nail fungus:

  • Keep feet dry as much as possible
  • Wear shoes that breathe properly
  • Wear shower shoes in public showers, locker rooms, and around pools
  • If you get a manicure or pedicure, insist that clean tools are used
  • Treat any injuries to your nail promptly
