First of all, before proceeding to talk about some of the toenail fungus remedies available, it would be appropriate here to say a little about what toenail fungus is about.

Toenail fungus is a condition that starts on the toes as a result of the feet becoming wet and sweaty and also as a result of the feet not getting enough exposure to fresh air. Fungi tends to breed and grow in surroundings that are very warm and moist and if the feet are in a constrained environment, the fungus will no doubt be allowed to grow and more importantly the fungus that started on just one toe, has the potential of affecting the other toes if care is not taken.

One of the first things to examine if one has toenail fungus is the type of environment one works or lives in and also most importantly the type of shoes that one wears. If one has a habit of wearing the same shoes for a very long period of time, there is the potential for the feet to become affected with fungi because the shoes have become a breeding ground.
