What Causes Toenail Fungus?
Fungi normally exist in our body along with other bacteria. But when fungus begins to overgrow under the toenails, this causes an infection called onychomycosis. If you have come in contact with someone else who has a fungal infection, it may spread to you.
Fungi develop in warm and moist environments that cause them to overpopulate. They happen more commonly in toenails because your toes are usually confined in your shoes, which is warm and moist.
