Nail Fungus or Not? Top 10 Signs You Have Onychomycosis

·

Onychomycosis, widely recognized as nail fungus, is a pervasive condition affecting millions worldwide, manifesting through the disfiguration of toenails and fingernails.

This fungal infection, primarily caused by dermatophytes, though yeasts and molds can also be culprits, often leads to thickened, brittle, and discolored nails, impacting not just the physical aspect of the nails but also the psychological well-being of those afflicted.

Early detection and treatment are pivotal in curtailing its spread and mitigating its effects.

Understanding onychomycosis, including its causes, the specific fungi involved, and its distinction from other nail disorders, is crucial for effective management and prevention.


Top Most Common Symptoms and Signs of Onychomycosis

1. Discoloration of the Nail

One of the first signs of onychomycosis is a noticeable change in nail color, typically turning yellow, brown, or white.


2. Thickening of the Nail

As the infection progresses, affected nails may become significantly thicker, making them difficult to trim and sometimes painful.


3. Brittleness and Crumbling

Infected nails can become brittle, with edges that easily crumble or break off, often leading to irregular nail shapes.


4. Change in Nail Shape

The shape of the nail may alter, with nails becoming warped or distorted as the infection advances.


5. Dullness

The natural shine of the nail disappears, leaving the nails looking dull and lifeless.


6. Separation from the Nail Bed

In more severe cases, the nail may begin to detach from the nail bed, a condition known as onycholysis, which can cause pain and discomfort.


7. Foul Odor

An unpleasant odor can emanate from the infected nails due to the fungal overgrowth.


8. Buildup Under the Nail

Debris may accumulate under the nail plate, contributing to discoloration and a thickened appearance.


9. Pain and Discomfort

In advanced stages, the pressure of shoes on thickened nails can lead to pain and discomfort when walking or wearing tight footwear.


10. Spread to Other Nails

Without treatment, the fungus can spread to adjacent nails, exacerbating the condition and making treatment more challenging.
