Hand and toe nail fungus

Hand and toe nail fungus or onychomycosis - an infectious disease that affects the nail plate. Unfortunately, the disease is highly contagious as it tends to spread from one nail to another, leading not only to health but also aesthetic issues.

Nail fungus has a few basic forms:

The first and most common form of nail fungus is distal subungual onychomycosis (DSO). In this case the free edge of the nail plate is harmed. 85% of these cases are caused by Trichophyton rubrum.

The less frequent form is proximal subungual onychomycosis (PSO). In that case the nail area that is closest to the proximal and lateral edges of the nail bed is damaged, and superficial white onychomycosis (WSO) – the outer layer of the nail plate becomes vulnerable (this is a rare form).

Totally dystrophic onychomycosis - a form of nail fungus when the nail plate damage is visible. As a rule, this happens owing to the progression of other forms of nail fungus. It is impossible to accurately determine whether the change agent is nail fungus by taking a look at nail defects only, since this may be related to some other disease. In this case it is necessary to consult a specialist.

It is a well-known fact that hand and toe nail fungus treatment is a complicated and lengthy process. This is because the fungal infection is very resistant to treatment. The standard treatment of nail fungus includes oral medications, ointments, surgical removal of the nail plate or a combination of these methods.
