Fungal Toe Nails Specialist

Presentation:

Onychomycosis is an infection of the nails caused by fungus. Injury or trauma to the nail root can also sometimes be mistaken for fungus with its presentation. Once infected, the toe-nail appears to have brown-yellow discoloration with eroded edges and is thickened making them painful with walking, difficult to wear shoes and a risk factor of breaking off causing pain. This fungus can also spread to the skin on the foot known as Tinea Pedis or athletes foot. The top, bottom of the foot and in between the toes can become infected creating an appearance of dry, flaking skin with some surrounding redness.

Common Causes:

Weakened immune system, environmental. Fungus generally spreads in places that are dark, moist and warm such as the gym locker room, shower and spa/jacuzzi.

How to Prevent:

Wear sandals in environments that make you more prone to getting infected by fungus, and make sure to dry very well between the toes after showers.

Treatment:

There is a wide range of treatments that is patient by patient and case by cases dependent and includes: Oral medication, topical medical, creams, laser and lacquers. A instant way to give treatment to our patients is trimming and debriding the thickened fungal toe-nails to reduce pain and chances of other problems occurring. This can be performed at the time of service and is a periodic service that is generally covered by most insurances.
