The Risks of Ignoring Fungal Infections

Onychomycosis, the official term for toenail fungus, may appear to be a small aesthetic issue, but if left untreated, it can have major health effects. A podiatrist at Allegheny Health Network, Dr. Peter Joseph, cautions that ignoring an infected toenail could result in a number of consequences.

Foot discomfort is one concern that could arise. The thickening and misshapening of the infected nail as the fungus spreads makes walking uncomfortable and challenging, especially while wearing shoes.
