For Fungal Nail Infections
Fungal nail infection (also known as onychomycosis) refers to an infection of the finger nails or toe nails by fungi. The infection is contagious so it is important to treat as soon as possible.

You have a fungal nail infection if:
- The rim of the nail is yellow or brown/ and or white spots on the nail.
- Nail is fully discoloured from whitish-yellow to yellowish-brown.
