What are they?
The feet can become infected by a virus, fungus or bacteria. The presentation can be in various ways. Nails may become thickened, discoloured, crumbly, have ridges or even cause pain. Each person can respond differently so these areas should be looked at.
Why treat them?
A thickened nail can cause excess pressure in a shoe and cause pain.
A fungal infection of the nail, if left untreated can spread further and become more problematic to more than just the nail.
The excess pressure in various nail conditions due to increased thickness can lead to ulceration, involution and ingrowing nails, and corns can form under the nails too.
