Nail Fungus

A fungal nail infection is caused by an overgrowth of fungus on, in or under the nail. The infection can develop slowly and symptoms can include discolouring of the nail, thickening and nail distortion. There are many contributing factors that can lead to fungal nail infections including circulatory diseases and weakened immune systems, moist fingers or toes, public swimming pools and showers / change rooms, injuries to the nail or skin, nail extensions, and unsanitised tools at nail salons.

Fungal nail infections are contagious and the fungus particularly thrives in warm, moist environments. It's important to practice good foot hygiene, avoid walking barefoot around public pools and showers and don't share towels where the bacteria can easily spread.
