DYK: Toenail Fungus is Contagious

Did you know that toenail fungus is a contagious fungal infection that could spread to other nails and your loved ones if left untreated. Thickened, brittle, and discolored nails are tell-tale signs that you have a fungal infecting lurking underneath your nails. A podiatrist can prescribe oral and topical medications, but the success rates are low.
