Once fungi take hold, it may spread from nail to nail, foot to foot, and rarely to the hands and fingernails. When the nails are exposed to a warm moist environment, a fungus can develop on the nail or under its outer edge. This is called onychomycosis. Depending on the type of fungus, the nail may turn yellow, gray, brown, or black. The nail may become brittle and crack. It may separate from its bed. The surrounding skin may be red, itchy or swollen. There are a number of types of fungal infections. DSO ( distal subungual onychomycosis): This is where the fungus, usually a dermatophyte, invades the space between the tip of the toe and the nail tip or the skinfolds at the sides of the nails. The toenails turn yellow and ...
