Fungal Toenails Got You Down: Here is a solution that can help! Get treated by our foot Doctors!

What causes toenail discoloration?

Two main reasons I see discolored toenails are fungal infeaction or trauma.

Fungus brews in darl, moist, and sweaty places.  If you wear closed toe shoesor walk in public saunas or pools, you are susceptible to fungal nails.
Trauma to the toe can also cause nails to discolor.  A hematoma can form under the nail and cause the nail to detach from the nail bed.  From there the nail can detach or renaim discolored for a considerable anount of time.  Traumatic nails can be more susceptible to fungus.

How to treat fungal nails?

Fungal Nails Have Returned: How to Treat

Another big concern we see in our clinic is recurrence of fungal nails.  Many patients have treated their discolored nails in the past and realized they have a recurrenceof the discoloration.

In our office, we will treat your disccolored nails with other treatments listed above and then discuss prevention.

Foot Hugiene is important to prevent recurrence of fungal nails.  Consider investingin UV-C shoe sanitizers and copper or silver embedded fiber socks.  This can reduce your chancesof fungal nail infections coming back.

We can also take a biopsy of the nail to see if there are any other causes of nail discoloration (ex. bacteria).
