Fungal nail infections usually start as a white or yellow spot under the nail tip, progressing to thickening and discoloration.

Symptoms include:

  • Discoloration: Nails may turn yellow, brown, or white.
  • Thickening and Distortion: Nails become thick and can change shape.
  • Brittleness and Raggedness: Nails may crumble easily at the edges.
  • Separation from the nail bed (onycholysis) often accompanied by a foul odor.
  • These symptoms can cause significant discomfort, especially when wearing shoes, and can be quite painful if the infection becomes severe.
