What Is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a fungal infection of the toenails and surrounding tissues. It is estimated that 14% of the total population has fungal nail infections. Fungal toenail infections are far more common than fungal fingernail infections.
Toenail Fungus Symptoms
There are several symptoms that indicate a person has toenail fungus, including nails that are:
- Brittle, crumbly, or ragged
- Separated from the nail bed
- Thicker than normal
An unpleasant odor is also common. People with toenail fungus may also have other fungal skin infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, and tinea pedis.
Toenail Fungus Causes
- Fungal skin infection
- Nail injury or foot deformity
- Trauma to the area
- Venous insufficiency
- Peripheral arterial disease
- A weakened immune system
Older people are also more likely to develop toenail fungus.

After Your Treatment Session

Post-treatment instructions will be provided, such as applying anti-fungal cream (typically twice a day). The patient will have to use antifungal powder inside their shoes. Walking barefoot in public places like swimming pools and gyms must also be avoided.
How Much Does Toenail Fungus Removal Cost?
