COMPREHENSIVE CARE For Fungal Toenails
Do you have thick, yellow, discolored toenails?
Are you embarrassed to wearyour open-toed shoes in public?
Chances are you have fungal toenails, a condition also known as onychomycosis.
Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that grows in and under the nail. The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma.
Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.
Treatment for fungal toenails includes topical and oral medications, which used together are very effective.
If you're tired of looking at those unsightly toenails, please schedule an appointment today.
