Is toenail fungus contagious?

Toenail fungus, medically called onychomycosis, is caused from different types of fungus which infect the nail.  It can be contagious to people you come in contact with.  You should wear some type of foot wear when you are in public areas in gyms, showers, pools to help protect yourself from contracting the disease.
