Fungus itself lies vastly through out environment. Unfortunately we can contract these Nail infections if we have a secondary infection in our surrounding skin or are exposed to the fungus.
Damage to the nail bed, the nail itself, suffering from underlying co-morbidities or diseases and a lack of nail management are all contributing factors to contracting a fungal infection.
The severity of the nail infection and nature of it should be assessed by a podiatrist in order to understand an adequate conservative or procedural management plan to treat your condition.
These Nail infections may become chronic or spread throughout other regions of your feet which can cause further long term implications. If you are suffering from a possible fungal infection visit one of our clinics today to understand the cause the the treatment plan required.
