Although most cases of nail fungus are found on adults, there are indeed quite a few instances where young infants contract a nail fungus infections. Infants learn through touch and of course any direct contact with an active nail fungus infection is a very common way for the infection to spread from person to person. If you have an active nail fungus infection and are a mother or father or someone who comes into contact regularly with infants, it would be wise to wear gloves or at the very least try to avoid making too much contact near the infants hands and feet. Since infants do not have a fully developed immune system, they are not as able to fight of the infection once exposed as adults are. So then, what should you do if an infant does get a nail fungus infection?
