Nail Fungal Infection

Nail Fungal Infection Facts

 

Fungal nail infection occurs when a fungus grows in or underneath your fingernail or toenail. The fungus, of a group called dermatophytes, can live in the dead tissue of the nail, outer skin layer and hair, and occur more often in toenails than in fingernails.

 

 


 

How to Detect Skin Cancer?

 

1) Oral anti-fungals medications

2) The fungus is only “cured” by the regrowth of a new, healthy nail. In severe cases, the infected nail may need to be removed.
