Get Relief With Cutting-Edge Foot Care
Toenail fungus is an often embarrassing condition characterized by cracked and discolored toenails. Left untreated, nail fungus can lead to pain and discomfort as well as more serious conditions such as severely ingrown or broken toenails and infections. Our team has the experience and knowledge necessary to provide top-notch toenail fungus treatment in Levittown and New York, NY.
Causes of Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus is most commonly caused by dermatophyte fungus as well as yeast and mold. These microscopic fungi thrive in warm, moist environments and make their way into the body through tiny cuts or breaks in the skin.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus is typically characterized by nails that are:
- Separating from the nail bed
- Surrounded by a yellowish, foul-smelling build-up
How to Diagnose Toenail Fungus
Given that other conditions such as psoriasis can mimic the look and symptoms of nail fungus, diagnosis is best made using a lab analysis of scrapings from under the nail in addition to a physical examination. One of our skilled podiatrists will determine your case after a thorough evaluation of your feet.
Our Treatment Approach
Surgery is always a last resort option, including when it comes to toenail fungus. We do our best to help you without surgery, and we have a number of treatment options available for toenail fungus including anti-fungal creams and medications, laser therapy, and EPAT shock wave therapy. If you find that your toenails are hurting you or your feet are experiencing any pain or discomfort at all, we highly recommend that you see one of our podiatrists as soon as possible.
