Toenail fungus infections can be unsightly to look at and a source of embarrassment for those who deal with them. Affecting the nail and nail bed, they result in a hardening of the nail accompanied by a yellow hue and bad odor that is a sure sign that something may be wrong. They also cause the toenails to become brittle and break away, leading to a deformed, unattractive toenail.
The fungi that cause this condition, most often Candida and Dermatophytes, thrive in the moist environments found in shoes, allowing them to spread quickly and easily between toenails. As a result, it can be a very stubborn condition to treat with few traditional treatment options available.
Many people make the mistake of attempting to treat fungus at home, but this is a condition that can only be properly treated by a doctor. Typically the only treatment available for this condition is a pill, which is known for having harmful side effects, such as liver toxicity.
