Toenail fungus, also called onychomycosis, is a particularly stubborn and persistent infection that affects approximately 6.5% of the Canadian population. They are more common in people over 60 and those with other health conditions, such as athlete's foot, nail psoriasis, nail injury, diabetes, or a weakened immune system.
Symptoms include the thickening, discolouration (or colouration), and weakening of toenails. More than just unsightly, fungal infections can spread and lead to complications, especially in diabetics or patients with compromised immune systems.
