We already discussed about this here, anyway let me point out few noted things which causes it.
Main reason excepted is unhygienic way of life, I agree you pat more attention to it but we all pay very less attention on our feet. This is from where fungus invades.
Wearing tight shoes, not washing feet after work, sharing public rooms, using others flip-flops or socks etc…
Another reason could be low vitamin in your diet, this causes vitamin deficiency making nails and body weak. And easily fungus can break through it and attack.
You can easily recognize fungus when you see your nails, but at this stage fungi already attacked your nails, so you must be quick to react and don’t be lazy.
