  Signs of fungal nail infection  

Initially the infection is painless. The features that patients first notice is that the nail texture changes from smooth to rough and slowly the nail can become thickened.

The nail can become discoloured, initially with a green-yellow tinge that starts at the tip of the nail.

Sometimes these are the only changes that occur, but if the infection becomes more severe, then white or yellow patches can appear under the nail. This is a sign that the nail has started to come away. The nail may become soft and brittle, and the skin next to the nail may become inflamed. By this stage it usually becomes quite uncomfortable to wear shoes or when walking.

An experienced practitioner can make the diagnosis by careful examination of the nails, and in some cases samples of the nail can be sent away for microscopy, but this is not always conclusive.
