What causes fungal nail infections?

Fungi thrive in moist, warm environments and when given these ideal conditions, they can naturally overpopulate. This is often characterised as fungal infections such as jock itch, athletes foot and ringworm. The same fungus which causes these infections can then continue to cause nail infections. When the fungi overgrows in, under or on the nail, you will suffer from a fungal nail infection.

Fungal nail infections can also be caused by walking barefoot in places where they can be spread easily such as communal showers, changing rooms and gyms or from damage to your nails such as split or black nails.
