The nail plate can have a thickened, yellow, or cloudy appearance.
The nails can become rough and crumbly, or can separate from the nail bed.
There is usually no pain or other bodily symptoms, unless the disease is severe.
Dermatophytids are fungus-free skin lesions that sometimes form as a result of a fungus infection in another part of the body.
This could take the form of a rash or itch in an area of the body that is not infected with the fungus.
Dermatophytids can be thought of as an allergic reaction to the fungus.
Patients with onychomycosis may experience significant psychosocial problems due to the appearance of the nail.
This is particularly increased when fingernails are affected.
