Why do I have fungus on the nail beds of my hands and feet?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Nail bed fungal infection could be due to either continuous exposure to water or immune deficiency.
It is treated with a systemic antifungal for six months and keeping nails dry most of the time.
Immune-deficient conditions should be excluded.
Please send me a photo of your nails in order to classify how severe it is.
