Keep Your Nails in the Pink
A fungal infection may cause nails and nail beds—the area of skin beneath the nail—to:
Turn white, yellow, or brown
Become fragile, cracked, or more likely to break
Preventing Nail Fungus
Here’s how to reduce your risk for nail fungus:
Keep your hands and feet clean and dry.
Clip your fingernails and toenails short and clean them regularly.
Don’t share nail clippers.
Wear flip-flops at communal showers and pools.
Bring your own manicure tools to the salon.
