Nail fungus can have a significant impact on the emotional, social and occupational well-being of individuals. Typically, the nail becomes thicker and changes to a yellowish-brown. Foul smelling debris may collect under the nail. The infection can spread to the surrounding nails and even the skin.
Nail fungus not only looks unhygienic, it can be contagious too; spreading from one nail to another, and from one person to the other. Therefore, it is crucial to treat nail fungus as soon as symptoms arise and the infection has been diagnosed.
