Health Tip: Identifying Nail Fungus
(HealthDay News) -- A fungal nail infection may not always hurt, but it can trigger unsightly discolored nails that itch, along with surrounding toes or fingers.
The American Academy of Dermatology says symptoms of a fungal nail infection include:
Nails that become yellow or brown, starting at the tips and spreading across the nails. Such nails may crumble or split.
Accumulation of debris underneath the nails. Eventually, the nails can detach as they pull away from the nail beds.
A powdery, soft or dry texture to the nails.
