Even Celebrities Get Nail Fungus

Celebrity Nail Fungus

Nail fungus is a very common chronic condition. An estimated 8 percent of the adult population in the United States has nail fungus. That’s a whopping 36 million people. Up to 20 percent of adults over the age of 40 have it. Nail fungus is the most common type of nail disease, and it can lead to pain, discomfort and embarrassment. Fungus can make the nails become brittle, thick and discolored and, unfortunately, no one is immune. Even celebrities get nail fungus from time to time.

Celebrities Get Nail Fungus

In 2004, singing superstar and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul contracted a fungal infection in her thumb. The infection occurred following a manicure from a nail salon, and it was reported that she ended up in and out of hospitals for a year before the infection was fully cleared up. She had to endure prescription medications with a laundry list of side effects and local anesthetic shots. According to Abdul, the infection caused her thumb to be so sensitive that even the slightest touch on her hand was enough to make her scream. Her experience led her to go before the California Senate and Business Committee to urge them to pass legislation imposing stricter regulations and rules for nail salons in the state of California.

Comedienne Margaret Cho is also no stranger to nail fungus. In a 2012 blog post, she discusses her toenail fungus, which has “confounded” her and “plagued her beautiful feet for a lifetime”. She makes light of the affliction, recounting details of paying a nail technician to grind her nails down every few weeks just to have them grow back up again. After unsuccessful attempts to treat the infections with fungicides and medications, she has resigned to a life with fungus.

Madonna debuted a new perfume wearing open-toed shoes that showed off thick, discolored nails that are a telltale sign of a fungal infection. Supermodel Kate Moss picked up a fungal infection following a pedicure in New York City’s Chinatown. It has even been reported that heartthrob Robert Pattinson, start of the “Twilight” movie series, was spotted on the set with toenail fungus.
