Symptoms: The prolonged discoloration and darkening of nails.
Causes: In the vast majority of cases, black toenails are an early sign of Onychomycosis, commonly known as: Nail Fungus. The prevalence of onychomycosis is very common with 6-8% of the adult population suffering an unsightly fungal infection of the nails.
Treatment: Onychomycosis will continue to become worse and more difficult to treat the longer it is left to grow and spread. Treatment of Onychomycosis can be a long and frustrating process when incorrect or incomplete treatment methods are used. Ensure that whatever treatment is used contains an active anti-fungal ingredient along with nail penetrating essencial oils. Most treatment formulas fail to reach the nail bed where the Onychomycosis lives and grows.
