Are you itchy between your toes or on the soles of your feet?
Or are your toenails becoming thickened and discoloured?
If you are, then you could be suffering from a possible fungal infection.
Your skin and nails comprise your body’s largest organ. They can be susceptible to a wide range of invading micro-organisms, one of which are fungi.
Not only can fungal infections be troublesome due to the itchiness and irritation you may experience, but they also make your foot look aesthetically displeasing. Another important point with fungal infections of the skin and nails is they can be easily transmitted to other members of the household, particularly in areas such as the bathroom and laundry.
