Fungal nails. The nails can look quite unsightly and can be the source of much embarrassment. The onset of infection is gradual, but after, the progression is relentless and the infection does not clear up spontaneously.
Often times fungal nail infections are preceded by athletes foot (a fungal infection of the skin of the foot), it’s important to treat this quickly as it is much easier to treat athletes foot than a fungal nail infection.
It’s best to seek professional help. In terms of prevention. Its important to wash, rinse and dry feet thoroughly every day, as the infection thrives in dark, warm and moist environments. Wear natural fibre socks and shoes and do not share footwear.
When walking in public areas keep feet covered at all times especially in communal showers,
changing rooms at gyms and the swimming pool area.
