You may be suffering from a case of fungus in your toenails and this is causing your toenails to become yellow, thickened, discolored, and emitting a foul odor. No worries because this is a fairly common foot problem and is treated easily.
Nail fungus is a fungal infection in one or more of your nails and is highly contagious. You can get it by stepping in a puddle at the gym locker room, sharing a shower with someone with foot fungus, and even in a bed if your partner has foot fungus. The fungus gets on your sheets and can spread this way.
While toenail fungus is not fatal, it can cause some issues. For example, thickened and sharp nails can lead to cuts on the side of your toes. Also, you may feel embarrassed to take off your shoes, especially now since it’s summer, you will want to wear sandals and go barefoot. Your feet, because of fungal toenails, may be emitting an odor that makes you nervous when taking off your shoes.
At American Foot and Ankle Specialists, we have extensive experience helping people alleviate their foot and toenail fungus conditions. Like I said, this is a fairly common condition because fungus is so contagious and seeing a Scottsdale foot doctor is your best option to get rid of the condition once and for all.
