Fungal infections of the toenails can be difficult to treat, and recurrences are common. During the summer, toenail infections occur more frequently, as people spend more time walking barefoot in places where bateria and fugi can lurk - around pools, at the beach, etc. Feet also tend to sweat more in warm weather, which can contribute to an infection. There are new medications on the market that have shown promise in treating fungal infections, although infections can recur.

It might be because of the time they spend in dark, moist places, or it might be because of the lack of attention they get.
