What is nail fungus?

Fungus is a type of organism that grows in the skin or nail.  Nail fungus is often found  in the deep layers of nail and causes a yellow discoloration and thickening of the nail.  It is important to note that fungus is in the growth plate of the nail called the matrix and in order to treat the fungus for an extended period of time, the matrix must be cleared of the fungal infection.  When the matrix is cleared of the fungal infection, the nail will begin to grow out clear and normal in color and thickness.
