Spreading in a pandemic fashion, up to 15% of the population have toenails deteriorated by fungi, an infection called mycotic nails, fungus nails, onychomycosis (OM), or Tinea Ungueum. The main fungus type involved in OM, Trichophyton Rubrum, is also known to cause a fungal skin infection called athlete’s foot or Tinea pedis. This fungal parasite eats human keratin, a protein concentrated in nails and skin between the toes and under the feet. If walking barefoot, an infected person will leave skin fragments on the ground – only to be stepped on and contracted by the next barefoot person who may soon have signs of Tinea Pedis. The T. Rubrum fungi will finally find their way under nail plates first detached from their respective nail bed by numerous repetitive microtraumatisms either caused by a biomechanical imbalance of the foot, by wearing inappropriate ill-fitting shoes or keeping toenails much too long.
