But did you know that there are a number of conditions that can be mistaken for a Fungal nail infection? Indeed, not every nail that is thick or discoloured or is lifting away from the nail bed is due to a fungal infection. Below is a list of conditions (some common) that can be mistaken for a fungal nail infection.
Yellow nail Syndrome
Traumatised nail
keratosis follicularis (Darier’s disease)
Lichen planus
Pachyonychia Congenita
Even cancer

and this is not the whole list.

It is therefore helpful to know whether the toenail condition is in fact due to an infection or some other cause. At Happy Health Clinics, fungal nail infections aren’t only treated, but can also be scientifically tested.
