Top Way to Treat Nail Fungus

Fungal nail infection, medically known as Onychomycosis or tinea unguium, is a chronic and potentially persistent condition that affects millions of people worldwide. While the condition is usually caused by the same fungi associated with athlete’s foot (dermatophytes), a variety of non-dermatophytic molds and Candida may result in an infection of the nails as well.

When a fungal nail infection occurs, it starts off as a yellow or white spot just under the tip of a fingernail or toenail. Mild cases usually clear away on their own, especially if the afflicted person has a strong immune system.
