What is a Fungus?

Fungi were considered to be members of the plant kingdom because of similarities in lifestyle: both fungi and plants are mainly immobile, and have similarities in general morphology and growth habitat; mushrooms and mosses are good examples. Fungi are now, however, considered a separate kingdom, distinct from both plants and animals.

What is a “nail fungus”?

Onychomycosis, nail fungus, is mostly caused by tinea unguium, a contagious fungal infection of the nail; it also causes ringworm of the skin (Trichophyton rubrum or T. mentagrophytes).

Having fungus under a nail, can result in discoloration, thickening, chalkiness, or crumbling of the nails and is often treated by powerful oral medications. It can cause permanent damage to the nail and can easily spread to other nails. Although a nail fungus condition does not cause pain, it is embarrassing due to the unsightliness of your nails.

Nail fungal infection is a common condition that can affect anyone. Unfortunately, if left untreated, the fungus under your nail will not disappear - it can last for years, or even become a life-long affliction. There are several risk factors that can influence the likelihood of developing a nail fungus. Active sports persons, elderly people and diabetics are more likely to develop the condition.
