Fungal Nails

The scientific name of fingernails or toenails fungal infection is Onychomycosis, which is also called tinea unguium. This is not an overnight process. Hence, you may not notice the growth of fungal at the initial stage; until it starts causing pain on your nails and make them look unsightly.

Why It Develops

The fungi can overgrow in, on or under the nail of your fingers or toes. When the overgrowth gets to a certain level, you can see the sign of infection. Warm and moist environment cause the rapid growth of fungi. If you live in such an environment or work in such ambience for many hours on a regular basis, then the chances of having fungal infection on or in nails become higher in your case.

Already existing fungi in your body can also cause infections when they get the supportive environment to grow and flourish. Apart from these, if you go to some nail salon and have pedicure and manicure using the same tools without disinfecting them after the previous use, then also you can get such infection.
