Fungal infection of the nail is called onychomycosis. It is a common nail disorder in adults and manifests with thickened yellow or white fingernails or toenails. While all nails can be involved, it is also possible for only one or a few nails to develop the nail fungus. It is thought that 12% of Americans cope with nail fungal infections. Treatment options for nail fungus include oral anti-fungal therapy and topical anti-fungal therapy depending on severity and preference.
The dermatology professionals at Kentucky Dermatology can evaluate your nails and discuss treatment options.
