Onychomycosis, or fungal infection of nails, affects about 12% of Americans, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. There’s a variety of explanations why some people are more prone than others. Some carry the genes that cause a genetic predisposition to the infections. Others, such a swimmers and athletes, are more likely to be affected. According to scientists, because they are more likely to walk barefoot in public places or have damp feet, those environments carry the problem . In its mild forms, nail fungus is cosmetic, but overtime it can be extremely painful to walk.
