Onychomycosis, or fungal infection of nails (most often on the toes) affects approximately 12% of Americans, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Some people are genetically prone to it. Others, including swimmers and other athletes, are prone to onychomycosis because they go barefoot in public areas or because their feet are often damp. In its mild forms, nail fungus is merely a cosmetic problem, but over time it can cause toenails to grow abnormally and make it painful to walk.
