Nail & Fungus Compounding

Nail Fungus Compounding

Onychomycosis, more commonly known as toenail and fingernail fungus, is a widespread and often embarrassing fungal condition. Toenail fungus is more common than fingernail fungus, mostly due to the lack of airflow and daily cleaning. Closed-toed shoes are also a common cause of toenail fungus conditions, as they prevent normal aeration of the nails.

Common risk factors of toenail fungus include:

  • Age (Adults are at Higher Risk)
  • Sex (Males are more common to develop serious conditions, however women are also at risk)
  • Diabetes
  • Nail Trauma & Damage, Causing Weak or Brittle Nails
  • Hyperhydrosis, Excess Water in or on the Skin
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease
  • Athlete’s Foot, Another Common Foot Fungus
  • Poor Hygiene
  • Excess Exposure to Water
