What are fungal nails?
Fungus is a common infection that can occur in areas between your toes (athlete’s foot), the skin of your feet or your nails. If your nails are infected, you’re probably experiencing discoloration, thickening, crumbling at the edges and even pain at times.
What causes fungal nails?
Fungi live in warm and moist environments like showers and swimming pools. So if you’re a gym enthusiast, you’re especially at risk. It’s important to note that fungal infections can occur even through the smallest cuts in your skin.
What is our course of treatment?
We might begin with oral antifungal medication, medicated nail polish and creams, and then measure results over a short period of time. In extreme cases, we might recommend surgical intervention, which can include nail removal or laser and light-based therapies.
