What Causes Nail Fungus?

Your susceptibility to nail fungus may be hereditary, preceded by trauma, or related to peripheral vascular disease among other causes. The fungal infection itself is caused by exposure to a specific yeast or dermatophyte. These fungi are often found in warm, moist environments like inside your shoes or in swimming pools or showers. Nail salons can also be a likely place to spread nail fungus if the manicure tools are not sanitized properly.
