Onychomycosis, or tinea unguium, is a nail fungal infection which develops slowly over time due to the overgrowth of fungi on your feet.

Experts say that fungal infections usually affect toenails as they are confined in shoes, and are always in a moist and warm environment. You should also be careful when picking a manicure or pedicure salon – before getting your nails done, you should ask the staff how often they disinfect their tools, as they can spread fungal infections from one person to another.
