Dealing with nail fungus can be both embarrassing and frustrating. This common condition, characterized by discolored, brittle, and thickened nails, can affect anyone.

Fungus can be persistent, and treating it effectively may require time and patience.
The team at TKI can help. With an effective, non-invasive treatment, it’s possible to regain healthy, clear nails, alleviating both the embarrassment and frustration you have been feeling.

The treatment is quick, and the results are enduring, offering an efficient solution for nail fungus concerns.
What causes nail fungus?
Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is primarily caused by fungi known as dermatophytes. These microscopic organisms thrive in warm, moist environments and can invade the nails through small cracks or tiny cuts in the skin around the nails. Fungal infections can also be spread from person to person in damp communal areas, such as locker rooms and public pools. Additionally, factors like poor nail hygiene, wearing tight or non-breathable shoes, having a weakened immune system, or pre-existing nail conditions can increase the risk of developing a fungal infection.
Is it contagious?
Yes, nail fungus can be contagious. The fungal spores responsible for nail infections can spread from person to person through direct contact or by sharing items like shoes, socks, or nail clippers. It’s essential to take precautions if you have a fungal infection to prevent spreading it to others and to avoid using shared items that could harbor fungal spores.
