  • 3. About Nail Problems  One of the most common nail problems, nail fungal infections are commonly caused by dermatophytes, a group of fungi, but yeasts and molds can also cause infection. Nail fungal infections usually develop in those who have diminished blood circulation to the nails or health conditions like psoriasis or diabetes, as well as those who perspire heavily. Genetics could also raise the risk of infection.
  • 4. Conclusion  Although a nail fungal infection does not always cause pain at first, it may result in pain in the fingertips or toes if left untreated. This condition can also cause the nails to become brittle and distorted. In addition, those with a nail fungal infection can develop complications and even cellulitis.
