Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis)

Description of the disease:

Nail fungus, or onychomycosis, is an infectious disease that affects the nail plate. It is a common problem that can cause discomfort and worsen the appearance of the nails.


  • Distal. The disease starts at the tip of the nail and spreads inward.
  • Lateral. The fungus affects the side of the nail.
  • Proximal. The infection begins at the cuticle and spreads to the base of the nail.


  • Change in color and texture of the nails.
  • Thick or crumbling nails.
  • Pain when walking.


Onychomycosis is usually caused by fungi that thrive in warm and moist environments.


Diagnosing nail fungus requires a medical examination and possibly taking a nail sample for laboratory analysis.


Treatment may include the use of antifungal creams, lacquers, tablets, as well as procedures to remove the affected nail plate.


To prevent onychomycosis, it is important to observe hygiene measures, wear shoes made of natural materials, and avoid nail trauma.


Nail fungus is treated by a dermatologist or mycologist.
