Nail Fungus & Common Disorders

Nail Fungus & Common Disorders

While uncommon in children, nail disorders affect a large number of older adults. As we age, nails thicken and become more susceptible to fungal nail infections. Circulatory problems and use of medications, which also tend to increase as we age, raise the risk of developing a nail condition. Common nail fungi and disorders include: white spots, splinter hemorrhages, ingrown toenails, fungal infections (onychomycosis), bacterial infections, tumors and warts, mucinous cysts, dark spots.
