- As time progresses, this can lead to discoloured (commonly yellow toenails), thickened, crumbly, and painful toenails
- Fungal toenails can be caused due to excessive foot moisture, untreated Athlete’s Foot, or trauma to your toenails
- Left untreated, toenail fungus can spread and become resistant to treatment
- Receive education on treatment options, including oral and topical pharmaceuticals, and prevention of recurrence
