Onychomycosis is a

fungal infection

involving the nail unit. Distal lateral subungal onychomycosis (DLSO) is the most common subtype and usually results from untreated tinea pedis. Once fungus has invaded the nail unit, it can be a challenge to treat. Though onychomycosis has been historically viewed as a


concern, treating this disease is important due to potential complications, especially in elderly and immunocompromised individuals. As the incidence continues to increase, it is vital for health professionals to understand that


may be prevented by treating tinea pedis.
