Q
Does toenail polish cause fungus in the nails?

A

Toenail polish alone does not cause fungal infections. However, leaving toenail polish on for long periods of time (weeks/months) can make it difficult to know if a fungus has begun to infect the nail and can make the condition worsen from not being found sooner.
