Fungal Infection

Nail fungi is a condition that starts as a little white or yellow spot under your fingernail or toenail. As the infection develops, nail fungi may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble towards the tip. It can affect several nails at the same time. It is often caused by cross contamination, the bad hygiene in shoes, wearing sports shoes which is moist inside for prolonged periods or using infected nail tools.
