You have to ask, what are the toenail fungus symptoms. You know, people say you have an “infection” so you must feel something right?
So what is going on with that weird looking toenail? It might be many things but usually they turn out to be harmless. One of the most common things to affect a toenail is…fungus! There are a number of different fungal infections out there and the one thing that they all like is keratin, which is a massive component of nails.
Keratin is their food, they love it and we are…well, a buffet.
In the beginning, a fungal nail infection may not have any obvious symptoms. As it progresses some of the symptoms a nail with a fungal infection might have include:
Some more specific toenail fungus symptoms include the following:
Eventually the toenail (s) will become thickened and flaky. You are more likely to have a fungal nail if you are elderly, swim regularly, athlete's foot, psoriasis, diabetes, family members with the infection, or have a suppressed immune system.
So while you don’t actually get that much actual symptoms/ feeling with toenail fungus symptoms- it can present in many different ways.
