Onychomycosis is the medical name for fungal nail infections. Affecting the fingernails and toenails, in both men and women, a fungal nail infection is caused by fungi which weakens the nail, discolouring it and making it thickened, brittle and crumbly. Many over-the-counter treatments for onychomycosis are time consuming and ineffective so many seek other non-surgical options from specialist clinics to restore their nails to a healthy state.
Fungal nail infection, or onychomycosis, is very common. It is caused by a fungus, similar to the one that causes Athlete`s foot, which attacks the fingernails or more commonly toenails. Laser treatment is effective for fungal nail infections.
