Hi,
Onychomycosis or fungal infection of the nail may be difficult to treat because the infection is embedded within the nail. It is difficult to reach and the infection may also recur. It is important that you wash your hands after touching an infected nail. Nail fungus can spread from nail to nail. There are different types of fungus that affect the different parts of the body. These fungus love to thrive in warm and moist places. With regards to your face, diagnosis of a fungal infection is through skin scrapings observed under the microscope. Have this evaluated further for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
