What is a fungal nail infection?

fungal nail infection


Fungal nail infections are a common condition that afflict the nails, particularly the toenails. There are many types of fungus that can infect the nails. Many of these fungi also cause other related infections, such as athlete's foot or candidal infections. So you may find, for example, that if you suffer from athlete's foot, the infection can spread to the nails.

How do I know if I have a fungal infection?

Fungal nail infections generally yield a number of the following symptoms:
  • Brittle nails.
  • Discolouration of the nails.
  • Sometimes, thickening of the nails.
  • Sometimes (but not always), a related fungal infection happening at the same time, e.g. athlete's foot or candida of the folds of the skin between the toes.
You are more likely to suffer fungal toenail infections, or other fungal foot infections, if you have sweaty feet.Fungal nail infections are much more likely to affect the toenails rather than the fingernails, as fungus usually prefers a moist environment. However, if you often wear gloves that are not breatheable (e.g. rubber gloves), then you may find yourself susceptible to fungal fingernail infections too.

How can I treat a fungal nail infection?

For nail infections affecting one or two nails, Curanail is the most popular treatment, as it is a pharmacy-licensed product and, as such, is clinically proven for its efficacy and safety. However, other treatments exist too: see our fungal nail infections category for further information.
