Any health problem requires treatment. It is a general tendency to leave the things for ‘some other time’. But there are some diseases which need immediate medical attention and treatment. If not, they aggravate. Nail fungus is one of such diseases.
As far it is an ailment of a stiff, bristle body part, it may seem to you that it can be treated later. But as a matter of fact, it needs as much attention as any other body ailment.
The medical name of toenail fungus is ‘Onychomycosis’. It is also known as ‘tinea unguium’. Nail fungus is amongst the common most diseases of nails. Fungus can occur in any foot nail, but toenail fungus is the most common. 6 to 8 percent adults catch Onychomycosis.
