Fungal infection is the most common cause of nail conditions. At DermCare in Mississauga, we recommend taking a proactive approach, because the infection can spread quickly. It can also damage the nails if left untreated.


These types of infections spread very easily through direct contact or contaminated surfaces. Because fungus thrives in damp conditions, locker-rooms, pool showers, and similar public areas create an ideal environment.

You can take steps to reduce your risk:

  • Wear foot protection in places such as the gym.
  • Try to change gloves or socks if they become sweaty. Nails are more susceptible to infection when they are damp for an extended period of time.
  • Don’t share personal care items, such as manicure and pedicure tools, with others.
  • Keep hands and feet clean, giving extra attention to the nails when washing and drying.


Unlike an infected fleshy wound, nail infections are not painful or uncomfortable. The first clues are visual, and they can be easy to miss. If you wear close-toed shoes and use nail polish, then you may not actually see your nails often. It is important to pay attention and watch for these signs:

  • Discoloration on part of the nail, often beginning at the tip
  • Buildup of debris under the nail
  • The nail dethatching from the toe or finger
  • Powdery, dry, or soft nail surface
  • Thickening and brittleness of the nail


One of the primary reasons for prompt treatment is preventing the spread of nail fungus. If one of your nails is infected, it can quickly move to the others. You can also infect people in your household, gym, or others you come into contact with.

If you see signs of nail fungus, don’t wait to seek treatment. Call DermCare at (855) 952-4455 and schedule a consultation today.

Five Star Review From Google

I was having adult acne problem since 4 ,5 years and non of the doc in canada or back home could figure out the root cause and it was very much depressing. I thought of giving a last chance to any derma clinic and on behalf of the reviews regarding doc Mohammad Faisal i choose dermacare clinic . He gave me an oral medication and advised me to visit after 3 month. From the very first application of the medication i could see the fantasic change. And its just 3 weeks of my visit my skin has improved like anything. I am so glad and so much thank ful to Doc Faisal. And i would recommend this clinic to all those who are facing adult acne.
