What is nail infection?

Nail Infection is a common medical condition caused by invasion of the nail plate and surrounding tissue by microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi or viruses. Nail infection affects both genders. However, nail infections are more common in women while toenail infections are common in men


The microorganisms get introduced into the skin surrounding the nail or the nail plate through activities that cause breaks in the skin such as manicure, pedicure, biting of nails, household chores etc. These microorganisms after invading the nail and surrounding tissue, multiply and cause infections

4%

A study revealed that about 4% of Ghanaians suffer from serious fungal infections yearly, with over 35,000 affected by life-threatening invasive fungal infections

What causes nail infection?

  • Bacterial - The bacteria Staphylococcus and Streptococcus are the most common culprits. These bacteria are usually found on the skin or within the environment. 

  • Fungus - Infections are caused by a group of fungi known as Dermatophytes. These fungi are usually found in wet and moist environment and can contaminate the nail bed through regular exposure of the nail to this environment
