It’s no secret that toenail fungus is a pretty common infection. People of any age can get it. Once they do, it is usually very difficult to get rid of. To make matters worse, toenail fungus won’t just go away by itself. It will continue to spread from nail to nail. This is why people with toenail fungus should get treated as soon as possible. But the toes aren’t the only nails to look out for. What some people don’t realize is that fingernail fungus is also possible. Yes, nail fungus can even spread from a toenail to a fingernail.
Just like toenail fungus, fingernail fungus can also be extremely difficult to get rid of. For many people, nail fungus on the fingers is actually even worse than toenail fungus because it’s harder to cover up hands than feet. People wear shoes on a regular basis, but they don’t generally don’t want to go around wearing gloves every day of their lives. People with fingernail fungus know that if other people look at their hands they will be in for an embarrassing question and answer session.
