What Causes Toenail Fungus?

Toenail fungus is most commonly caused by dermatophyte fungus as well as yeast and mold. These microscopic fungi thrive in warm, moist environments and make their way into the body through tiny cuts or breaks in the skin.

Symptoms of Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus is typically characterized by nails that are:

  • Misshapen
  • Thick
  • Brittle
  • Dull
  • Discolored
  • Separating from the nail bed
  • Surrounded by a yellowish, foul-smelling build-up

How to Diagnosis Toenail Fungus

Given that other conditions such as psoriasis can mimic the look and symptoms of nail fungus, diagnosis is best made using a lab analysis of scrapings from under the nail in addition to a physical examination.
