What causes nail fungus?
Tiny, microscopic organisms called fungi (the plural of fungus) cause a fungal nail infection. Many people pick up the fungi when they have skin-to-skin contact with someone who has a fungal infection like athlete's foot or ringworm on their hands.
What does nail fungus look like?
Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge.
How do we treat it?
During your consult, our Podiatrists thin down the nail bed and apply an all natural, locally made topical oil treatment (Antifungal Skin & Nail Treatment).
It is also recommended that you continue to see your Podiatrist routinely as well as applying the treatment daily for the first 2-4 weeks at home.
