Toenail Fungus

Fungus is an organism that thrives in warm, dark, moist areas. Toenail fungus while more prevalent in older individuals, it can affect people of all ages. Fungus infection of the toenail is called onychomycosis and of the skin on the feet is tinea pedis or athlete’s foot. Onychomycosis often appears as a yellow, brown, or black discoloration of the toenails which may also cause thickening and deformity of the toenails.

Treatment Options for fungus toenails

Treatment of onychomycosis by a Podiatric Physician will include the debridement and mechanical reduction of the thickened fungal toenails. This reduces the thickness of the nails which provides symptomatic relief and reduces the total fungal load.
