It is also seen more often in people suffering from diabetes or compromised immunity, while others are prone to fungal infection genetically. 5,6

Fungal nail infection affects the finger and toenails of 2 – 14 % of the adult Western population. It can also affect children and up to 50 % of people over 70 years of age. 5,7
