Fungal (Onychomychosis) Infection in Nails

 

What is it?

  • A fungal infection is an infection in the nails.  It can appear as a yellow, green, brown(ish) colour and its texture is brittle and crumbly.  It can be a cause for embarrassment / discomfort.

Causes

  • A fungal infection can be caused by trauma to the toenail resulting in ruptures in the nail plate allowing fungal organisms / yeast / mould formation to build up.

  • Genetic disposition could also be another factor, that the patient and family are actually susceptible to a type of fungus.

Treatments

  • A nail sample can be taken (Needs to be taken to a pathology ward for testing = to determine most effective treatment).

  • Over the counter fungal treatments are also available.
