Understanding Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection that affects the toenails. It occurs when fungi, such as dermatophytes, invade the nail bed and the surrounding area. This condition can cause the nails to become discolored, thickened, brittle, and crumbly. Toenail fungus can be stubborn and challenging to treat, but with the right remedies, you can restore the health and appearance of your nails.
