Caption: Tinea unguium toenail infection. View of broken, discoloured and poorly growing toenails due to a fungal infection (tinea unguium, or onychomycosis). Tineal infections are caused by a group of fungi called the dermatophytes. Tineal infections may be acquired from an infected person, an animal, from soil, shower floors or from household objects such as chairs or carpets. Tinea is usually treated with antifungal drugs in the form of creams or ointments, however for widespread infections the drug is taken in tablet form. Treatment may be continued for some time after the symptoms have subsided to totally eradicate the fungi and to prevent a recurrence.
