This condition is an inflammation of the nail fold, resulting in redness, swelling and throbbing pain. In severe cases pus will drain from the area surrounding the nail.
A chronic, progressive infection of the nail, that is caused by Dermatophytes, Candida and some moulds. It is often the result of a secondary or “spread” colonization.
