Onychomycosis is a fungal condition that causes discoloration in the fingernails or toenails. Without treatment, the condition could continue to progress which could cause difficulty walking, standing, and exercising. Common symptoms of onychomycosis include nail discoloration, pain, irritation, and pressure while wearing shoes. Onychomycosis can be caused by trauma, poor health, family history, communal showers, shoes, and advancing age.
If you start to notice discoloration on your fingernails or toenails, call Marysville Foot & Ankle Clinic to learn if you may have onychomycosis.
