This Little Piggy Has Fungus

Toenail fungus can cause significant personal distress.  Who wants to don sandals when you have thick, crumbly toenails with a mosaic of yellow and brown colored toenails?  What you do not want to do is paint them.  These simple signs could signal a nail fungus.  Applying nail polish to an infected nail could make the problem worse. Treatment options vary from costly laser therapy to topical antifungals to oral medications.  Which one is right for you is variable and should be discussed with your physician?   Keep your feet clean and dry.  Change shoes and socks frequently.  Sweaty feet will create the perfect environment for fungus to grow unsuspected beneath your toenail.  Wearing socks that keep feet dry will help your feet stay healthy.  Synthetic wicking socks are your best bet over cotton or wool. And have peace of mind that having a toenail fungus can happen to just about anyone.  Call today to schedule your appointment with your podiatrist.
