How does vinegar cure toenail fungus

Nail fungus

As with athlete's foot, the nail fungus is triggered by the filamentous fungus dermatophyte. But mold and yeasts are also possible causes. This dermatophyte likes to attack the skin, hair and nails.

In contrast to athlete's foot, the symptoms range from dullness of the nail to pale, yellow or gray-brownish spots on the nail. Discoloration on the edge of the nail can also be an indication.

Usually a visit to the doctor is necessary to avoid further infections of other nails. General hygiene should be observed as a preventive measure.
