Fungal nail infection are the most common disease of the nails. Infections can range from mild to severe and can affect one or several nails on both feet and hands. Fungal nail infections are commonly found in people aged over 55, and regular users of communal showers, such as athletes or swimmers.
Fungal nails are usually characterised by a white/black/yellow/green thickened nail with a brittle, flaky appearance. In some cases, the infected area can produce an unpleasant odour. Infections do not always show symptoms or cause pain.
