If your nails have begun to change in appearance, this can be an indication of nail fungus. While nail fungus infections are more prevalent in the elderly, they can and do still affect anyone, no matter how old you are. This is why it is important to always pay attention to your feet and hands.
What are some of the signs and symptoms of a nail fungus infection? There are lots of possibilities. Normally our nails are clear, but nail fungus can change that. Many people will see white or yellow spots on their nails. Others might notice an unusual odor coming from their feet. It is possible that you will see thick, brittle or generally distorted looking nails. If your nails become crumbly or start to hurt, this can also be a sign of nail fungus. Of course, these are just a few of the nail fungus symptoms. There can be other ones as well. And it is important to keep in mind that while these signs usually are symptoms of nail fungus, they aren’t always. However, if you see just one symptom at first and then start seeing other ones, you should certainly get them checked out right away.
