Have you noticed your nails suddenly increase in thickness or change in colour, or perhaps a combination of the two? Chances are you may have contracted a fungal nail infection.
Fungal nail infections are highly contagious and difficult to treat when in place for long periods of time. Despite this, sound clinical guidelines and medicaments can go a long way to improving the condition of the affected nail or nails.
It is important to note that nails may thicken in response to severe or repeated trauma alone, and in such cases the resulting nail shape or desire to grow thick cannot be undone.
