About half of the nail disorders occur as a result of the fungal infection. Therefore, the infection is much more prevalent under sick or deformed toenails.
Nail infection is usually very persistent and the treatment is complicated. In addition, Toenail Fungus Infections may cause embarrassment because of the deformed and unsightly nails. Toenail Fungus signs include a thickened nail plate or nail bed, yellow discoloration of the nails, foot pain and bad foot odor caused by the fungal debris under the nail. The nails often become thick and fragile and can detach from the nail bed or the skin under the nail.
