Superficial fungal infection caused by excessive use of nail polish on the toenails

Nail polish is a waterproof barrier and toenails have moisture that comes up from the skin, under the toenail and out of the toenail plate into the atmosphere. If you continue to wear nail polish for too long, moisture builds up between the space of the nail and the toenail polish creating cracking and natural fungus increases and becomes white fungal craters on the surface of toenail. If this is caught early do not reapply nail polish to hide or cover it. Make an appointment with the podiatrist as soon as possible and the podiatrist will remove all the superficial cracking and apply a strong anti-fungal nail lacquer to kill any existing fungus and the nail will have immediate visual improvement.
