Why a Cosmetic Toenail?

What causes onychomycosis?

A class of fungus known as dermatophytes causes about 90% of all toenail fungus. Dermatophytes prefer to live on the skin. Fungus thrives in the warm moist environment provided by the feet. A second category of fungus, non-dermatophytes, includes several varieties of mold and yeast. They prefer to live elsewhere but are quite capable of living (and thriving) on the feet. Non-dermatophytes are responsible for approximately 10% of all cases.

Anyone can develop onychomycosis at any time yet the condition affects older adults more often. As we age our nails become more brittle and dry resulting in small, often microscopic cracks which allow the fungus to enter. Older adults also tend to have weaker immune systems and may have impaired circulation which can play a significant role.

It’s not uncommon for the dermatophyte responsible for athlete’s foot to spread to one or more toenails. Once established, the organism goes on to cause onychomycosis. It’s rare, however, to contract nail fungus from another infected person.

Onychomycosis risk factors

Below is a review of common risk factors for developing fungal infection of the toenails.

  • Advanced age. Older adults tend to have brittle nails and have had more years of exposure to the fungus. They may also have an impaired immune system and circulation.
  • Athlete’s foot. Those with a medical history of athlete’s foot are at greater risk for toenail fungus.
  • Wearing heavy closed-toe footwear such as boots for long periods of time.
  • Feet which sweat heavily.
  • Repeated exposure to moist communal areas such as locker rooms, public showers, and public pools and hot tubs.
  • Injury to the nail or cuticle. This gives the fungus a pathway beneath the nail where it can establish itself on the nail bed.
  • Being diabetic. Those with diabetes are at a higher risk for all types of foot problems and should see a podiatrist regularly.

Can onychomycosis spread from one nail to another or to other people?

Yes, onychomycosis can spread from one nail to another on the same person, and it can also potentially spread to other people. Here’s how:

  1. Spread Within the Same Person:

If one nail is infected with onychomycosis, the fungal infection can potentially spread to other nails on the same person. This can happen if the same tools are used on infected and uninfected nails or if the fungus spreads through contact.

  1. Spread to Other People:

Fungal nail infections are contagious and can spread to others through direct contact. Sharing items like nail clippers, nail files, socks, shoes, or walking barefoot in public places like locker rooms and pools can increase the risk of spreading the infection to others.

To prevent the spread of onychomycosis:

– Avoid sharing personal items related to foot care (nail clippers, files, socks, etc.).

– Keep your feet clean and dry, especially in humid environments.

– Avoid walking barefoot in communal areas where the infection might spread.

– If you suspect you have onychomycosis, consider seeking medical treatment to prevent its spread and worsening.

If you’re concerned about onychomycosis, consulting a healthcare professional can provide accurate diagnosis and guidance on how to manage and prevent the infection from spreading.

Can nail polish or acrylic nails worsen onychomycosis?

Yes, nail polish and acrylic nails can worsen onychomycosis. These cosmetic products can create a moist environment that promotes fungal growth and prevents proper treatment penetration. Additionally, covering infected nails may delay detection and exacerbate the infection. It’s advisable to avoid nail polish and acrylic nails until the infection is resolved. If you suspect onychomycosis, consult a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and guidance on managing the condition effectively. Nail polish and acrylic nails can exacerbate onychomycosis by trapping moisture.

Our Podiatrist recommends first killing the toenail fungus with laser prior to the applying a fake toenail. Secondly it’s important to apply a topical antifungal to the cuticle as the nail grows out under the fake toenail.
