You must have already heard about essential oils. Who doesn’t? They have become so popular due to their many health benefits and uses. Most of these oils have antifungal and antibacterial properties. That’s why many of them can be used to one of the most common fungal infections: nail fungus infection.
7What Is Toenail Fungus Infection?
Nail fungus infection goes by the medical name onychomycosis or tinea unguium. It’s a fungal infection that spreads on the fingernails or toenails. This infection happens when there is an overgrowth of fungus on, in, and underneath the nails. Fungus thrives in an environment that is moist and warm. The fungi that bring you to nail fungus can also give you jock itch, ringworm, and athlete’s foot. Fungal infections are more prevalent on the toenails than the fingernails because your feet are often confined by closed shoes.
