What Is Fungal infection

A fungus is a group of organisms that make spores. Fungi live mostly everywhere and usually don’t cause infections or skin growths. But, you may occasionally get fungal growths on your skin, like ringworm, jock itch, or vaginal yeast infection, athlete's foot.

What Is Toenail infection

  • It is a fungal nail infection occurring due to the attack of a fungus on the fingernail, toenail, or a skin under the nail, called the nail bed. The attack of fungus can be through small skin cuts in the skin around the nail or sometimes through the opening between the nail and nail bed. For a healthy person, the fungal nail is not the that serious problem.  But it may not look nice, may hurt, or may damage nail or nail bed. For a person with diabetes or a weak immune system, it may lead to a more serious problem.
