Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails but usually not all of them.
If your condition is mild and not bothering you, you may not need treatment. If your nail fungus is painful and has caused thickened nails, self-care steps and medications may help. But even if treatment is successful, nail fungus often comes back.
A few ways to prevent this infection is by, making sure your salon sterilizes their tools which are being used. Other tools such as buffer and file should only be used once on each customer. A very important step you should make sure your salon does is use a disposable liner for the pedicure tub this way the infection can be prevented.
