An infection of toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, typically occurs when fungi (most commonly dermatophytes) infect the nail, but may also be caused by yeasts and molds. The nail fungal infection usually begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of the toenail and then spreads deeper into the nail causing discoloration, thickening and the development of crumbling edges to the nail which can be unsightly and painful and may produce serious physical and occupational limitations. Onychomycosis can also have a detrimental effect on an individual’s quality of life, affecting their psychosocial and emotional wellbeing.
