Nail fungus (specifically, toenail fungus) quickly develops into a serious condition that spreads to other nails. One-in-four people will experience nail fungus during their lifetime and struggle in search of a cure.
Symptoms: Discoloration and thickening of nails, generally turning yellowish, green, or black and becoming brittle. If left untreated, nail fungus becomes progressively worse eventually flaking off or resulting in complete separation from the nail bed.
Treatment Options: Nail fungus is a difficult condition to properly treat due to the average time before seeing results and the general lack of understanding regarding topical treatments. Fungus grows underneath the nail bed, making it extremely difficult to target. Certain nail fungus products, like topical ointments, contain nail penetrating ingredients that treat fungus underneath the nail bed where it grows.
