Types of Fungal Nail Infection

Podiatrist Houston

Distal subungual onychomycosis (DSO) is the most common type of fungal nail infection. It is caused by the same fungi that cause most cases of athlete's foot (dermatophytes). DSO infects the skin under the end of the nail (nail bed) and in the nail. The infection starts at the end of the nail bed, and part of the nail often turns yellow or white. 

5 Tips to Care for Your feet to help prevent unwanted nail fungus

Podiatrist Houston

1.- Keep your feet clean and dry

Remove the insoles from your running shoes and place them aside, preferably next to a heat source. This will help the shoe dry between uses, especially in the winter months when moisture from snow and slush builds up. Warm, moist environments are an ideal breeding ground for toenail fungus infections.
