Fungus toenails are amongst the most common toenail problems that bring patients to see us.
Fungus is a "mold" that slowly infects the nail and causes it to grow in a thickened and discolored manner, often becoming yellow or dark brown.
Fungus may begin in just one or two toenails and, if untreated, will eventually involve all ten toenails.
Medication is available to treat this condition. Nails may become so thick and distorted that the patient themselves may not be able to cut their toenails and seek podiatric care.
