Do You Have Dull, Thick or Brittle Toenails?
If you’ve noticed that your toenails have become a dark white, black, yellow or green colour or that they’ve become brittle, distorted, thick or dull, you may have a toenail fungus. Toenail fungus, or Onychomycosis, is a common condition affecting approximately 1 in 10 adults. Toenail fungus is contagious and affects people of all ages. However, athletes and the elderly are especially vulnerable to getting toenail fungus.
What Causes Toenail Fungus?
Dermatophytes are most commonly responsible for toenail infections. These spores thrive in warm, dark, moist environments, such as the average person’s shoe. Because they tend to colonize under your toenail’s bed, in the nail itself and the surrounding tissue, once you have it, it will not go away on its own.
