Nail fungus

The fungal nail infection is easy to get. If your foot has a fungal infection, the fungus may spread to one or more of your nails. This is quite common.

You can catch a fungal nail infection in a warm and humid place, such as a pool deck or dressing room. If someone has a fungal infection and walks barefoot, all you have to do is walk barefoot in the same area.


A long period of wet nails may cause nail fungus. Some people develop it every day when they wear the same sweaty shoes or boots. Nails that have been wet for hours due to a job or hobby are also sensitive.

What you see in infected nails will vary depending on the type of fungus that causes infection.

Most people see color changes in their nails. The nail may have a white spot. Some nails turn yellow, brown or green. As the infection worsens, the infected fingernails may become thicker, lifted or crushed by the finger or toe. Some nails are thinner.
