Nail Fungus: Symptoms


In the yeast-type infection, the nail becomes whitish from the edge and the color slowly travels downwards towards the cuticles. In true fungal infections, the fungus makes the nail look yellow, thickens it and sometimes creates a split nail. The nail rises from the nail bed and you can see debris collecting under it that is because of the fungus. The nails may get detached from the nail bed as the infection spreads.
