What is a fungal nail?

Fungal nails are nails that are infected with a fungus or yeast.

Onychomycosis is the medical term for a fungal nail (‘fungal: mycosis – nail: onycho’) and can occur on toenails and fingernails. Fungi are microscopic organisms that do not need sunlight to survive. Some fungi have beneficial properties, while others may cause infection and illness.
