Onychomycosis or toenail fungus are fungal toenail infections. Toenail fungus cause toenails to become ugly, thick, discolored, hard, brittle, yellow. They can create major discomfort and even embarrassment. They are also EXTREMELY COMMON; affecting millions of people each year.

For some, hard, brittle, fungus toenails are simply genetic. When this is the case, treatment can become even more difficult given the likelihood of re-occurrence.
