Fungal Nail Infection: An Overview
Fungal nail infections, also known as onychomycosis, is a common condition that affects the nails of the feet and sometimes the hands. The infection is caused by a fungus that thrives in warm, moist environments, like sweaty shoes, public showers, and swimming pools. Fungal nail infections are more prevalent in older adults and people with weakened immune systems, but anyone can develop the condition.
Fungal nail infection can cause the nail to become discoloured, thickened, and brittle, in some cases making it difficult to walk or perform daily activities. While it’s not usually a serious condition, fungal nail infection can be unsightly and difficult to treat.
How common is fungal nail infection?
Fungal nail infections are a global issue, with varying levels of prevalence in different parts of the world and are common in countries with high humidity and warm climates. Fungal nail infections are also common in wet damp environments with an estimated 12% of the Irish and UK population infected.
Signs and Symptoms of Fungal Nail Infection
The most obvious sign of fungal nail infection is a change in the colour, texture, or shape of the nail. Common symptoms include:
- Thickening of the nail
- Brittle or crumbly nails
- Discoloration of the nail, often turning yellow or brown
- Deformation of the nail, with ridges or bumps appearing on the surface
- A foul odour coming from the infected nail
- Separation of the nail from the nail bed
- Pain or discomfort while wearing shoes or walking
- Prevalence of Fungal Nail Infection
Difficulties in Treating Fungal Nail Infections
The good news is that fungal nail infections are treatable, but unfortunately, many treatments are notoriously difficult. Topical creams and oral medications can often be ineffective, and sometimes they come with side effects. Additionally, many people are hesitant to take oral antifungal medications due to their potential liver and kidney damage,
It is very important to remember even the most effective treatment can take up to 12 months to work completely if the nail is completely covered in fungus. This is simply to do with the rate of growth of your nails. A healthy nail grows at a rate of about 2 millimetres per month, an infected nail can be slower! An effective treatment kills the fungus nearest to the root of the nail so it’s important to continue treatment until signs of the fungal infection are completely gone. A mistake many people make is stopping the treatment too early allowing the fungus to grow back again.
