Nail Fungus also called as ONYCHOMYCOSIS is a common fungal infection that can cause cracks and cuts through your nails. It can change the colour of your nails to pale yellow, white, or brown and make your nails get thicker.
Nail fungal infections can be caused due to a variety of fungi (fungal organisms) and are usually more common in older adults. As you age, your nails start getting brittle and dry. This results in cracks in the nails, which eventually allows fungi to enter. Nail fungus is more common in toenails than fingernails.
The fungal organisms strive to overpopulate in warm and moist environments. Therefore, when you wear shoes for the maximum time of the day, it gives fungi the required moisture and warmth, and thus, they thrive to multiply.
It basically occurs due to the overgrowth of fungi, in or under the nail. A fungal infection can also be caused if you have come in contact with a person suffering from it or in salons, due to the use of infected tools..
Therefore, when you get a manicure or pedicure at a salon, make sure to ask how often the staff sanitises their regular tools.
