Toenail fungus is a common complaint people make when they see the foot doctor. Fungal infections in the toenails can be difficult to treat and can cause pain, loss of the nail, and yellowing. What causes toenail fungus to form in the first place? Watch this video to learn more.
Toenail fungus occurs when fungus infects the nail bed. The fungus may enter via a trauma to the nail, or it may occur as a result of diabetes, particularly diabetes that is poorly controlled. Your foot doctor can treat fungus with topical and oral medications.
