A fungal nail infection often appears when nail fungus attacks your fingernails, toenails, and the nail bed. Fungi may also attack the nails through cracks and small cuts in the skin surrounding the nail or an entry point between the nail and nail bed. If you are healthy, the infection won’t have any serious complications.
12What are the symptoms of nail fungus infection?
Symptoms of the nail fungus infection may develop over time. A nail fungal infection may change the nails in the following ways: the nail may become yellow, brown, or white, may become thicker, and become crumbly and may split. It may even set off the nail bed. Sometimes it may cause pain and discomfort.
