Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the toenails or fingernails. This ailment causes toenails to thicken, discolor, disfigure, and split. At first glance, onychomycosis appears to be only a cosmetic concern. However, without treatment, the toenails can become abnormally thick forcing the toe to press against the inside of the shoes, causing pressure, irritation, and pain.

Generally, onychomycosis does not have any symptoms. Individuals seek treatment for cosmetic reason, not because they are experiencing pain.  However, if the disease continues to progress without treatment, onychomycosis may interfere with standing, walking, and exercising.

Onychomycosis is easily identified by its appearance. However, there are similar conditions and infections that can cause the nails to host a similar appearance to onychomycosis. Onychomycosis is generally established by laboratory tests before beginning treatment. Treatment options vary by individual and severity of the ailment.

Talk with your doctor about what treatments will work best for you.
