About The Study:
Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection that can affect the toenails and, less frequently, the fingernails. It typically begins as a small white or yellow spot under the nail and can progress to cause discoloration, thickening, and a brittle texture. While nail fungus is generally not painful, it can be unsightly and, if left untreated, may lead to more severe complications. Treatment options may include topical or oral antifungal medications, laser therapy, or, in severe cases, surgical removal of the affected nail. Since not all treatment approaches are effective or safe for everyone, it’s crucial to continuously explore and discover new treatment methods.
