Caption: Fungal infection. View of the broken, discoloured and poorly growing nail of a big toe infected with fungus (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 creams or ointments, however for widespread infections the drug is taken in tablet form. Treatment must be continued well after the symptoms have subsided to totally eradicate the fungi and to prevent a recurrence.
