The Impact of Unsightly Toenail Fungus
Nail fungus is a chronic condition that impacts your quality of life and can even lead to serious health problems for patients with diabetes or immune disorders. The treatment of nail infection is difficult because the infection is under and inside of the toenail, which makes it hard for other treatments to reach and destroy the infection.
Treatments such as medicated nail polish or oral medications may be associated with side effects or serious drug interactions. Home remedies such as using bleach, vinegar, mouthwash, or household cleaners to resolve the problem are often tried but, ultimately, fail to resolve it.

What is Onychomycosis
Nail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a common condition estimated to affect up to 20% of the population. Dermatiphytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for causing this condition. They are specialized organisms that live off of keratin which is the main component of nails and skin.
Onychomycosis causes a thickened, yellow, or cloudy appearance of the nail plate. The nail can become rough and crumbly, or can separate from the nail bed. There is usually no pain or bodily symptoms…unless the disease is severe.
Everyone is at risk for infection because fungus is present everywhere in the environment.
