Fungal Infection of the Nails

In addition to causing Athletes Foot, funguses can also infect the nail bed on the toes. This can result in discoloration of the toenail, and some discomfort when wearing footwear. And while individuals can protect themselves against fungal infection by keeping their feet clean and dry, and by ensuring that they do not go barefoot in public places. However, fungal infections of the nail can only be cured through use of an antifungal medication. And while some over-the-counter medications are available, the most effective therapies are only available through a prescription.
