A fungal nail infection can occur in fingernails or toenails. In the toenail it usually occurs as a result of having Athletes foot that has been left untreated. Athletes foot is a fungal infection that resides on the sole of the foot and between the toes, if not managed it can eventually spread to the nails. The nails can become discoloured, thickened, have a strong odour and become uncomfortable. The shape and thickness of the nail can change making them difficult to trim and causing discomfort when placing pressure on them.
