9Types of Toenail Infections
There are three different classes of toenail infections that you can have. Distal subungual onychomicosis is an infection of the nail bed and the underside of the nail plate. Secondly, a nail can be infected with a white superficial onychomicosis, which is where the upper layers of the nail plate are infected. Finally, your toenail infection could be a proximal subungual onychomicosis. This is the rarest form of toenail infection that occurs when the newest part of the nail plate is infected. This infection is usually the result of a compromised immune sytem.
