Nail infections Causes


Fungal nail infections are caused by excessive growth of fungi in, under, or on the nail. Toenails are more commonly affected as compared to finger nails. Fungi grow in warm, moist environments that are generally developed by wearing shoes, resulting in increased incidence of toenail infections.

According to Sushruta, Raktaja krimis infect the body when the kapha and pitta of the body are imbalanced.

The following factors increase the risk of fungal nail infections:

  • Unclean and wet feet
  • Shoes that result in hot and sweaty feet
  • Walking barefoot in areas likely to spread infection, viz., communal showers, locker rooms and gyms
  • Damaged nails
  • Weakened immune system
  • Certain other health conditions like diabetes, psoriasis or peripheral arterial disease
