Symptoms and Diagnosis
The majority of diagnoses for nail fungus infections can be made by discussion and inspection alone as the symptoms are mainly cosmetic. However, where there may be doubt about infection, a simple nail culture can be taken and tested to confirm the existence of nail fungus. Nail cultures can give false negatives in up to 30% of cultures tested.
Common symptoms of Fungal Nail Infections include
- Thickened Nail
- Nail Discolouration (White, Black, Yellow or Green)
