Health Tip: Recognizing Signs of Nail Fungus

(HealthDay News) -- If you frequent public showers or pools and don't always don your shoes, you may be more prone to nail fungus, a condition medically known as onychomycosis.

The Mayo Clinic says common symptoms include nails that are:

  • Unusually thick.
  • Crumbly and brittle.
  • Ragged.
  • Dull with no shine.
  • Abnormally shaped.
  • Unusually dark.
