Nail fungus is growing

April 19, 2017

Latest analysis on nail fungus by the World Health Organization indicate 1 in 10 people have experienced onychomycosis across the globe. The rise of the disease has increased alongside the spike in diabetes, immunosuppression and aging populations.

The ageing population has had a particular influence on the increase of fungal diseases as these infections are more likely to affect elderly individuals.

In fact, despite onychomycosis only appears in around 2.6% of children younger than 18 years however it impacts a significant number of older people.
