Toenail Fungus

Our Award-Winning Physicians Can Help Treat & Resolve Your Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus can be very distressing. Caused by a micro-organism that feeds on the keratin in the nail tissue, an infection usually results in toenails that are thick, discolored, crumbly, and ragged.

Fungal nail infections can affect people of all ages, but is more common in older individuals. The fungus begins growing first at the tip of the nail, but will eventual work its way back to the base. This is what causes the yellowish discoloration and thickening of the nail itself.

Fungus isn’t the only possible cause of discolored nails, of course. Other possible explanations include trauma, psoriasis, or lichen planus. During your initial visit, the doctor will take a biopsy of the nail. This is painless, and will help us confirm whether or not fungus is actually present.

Fungal nails can be treated with different treatments:

  • Oral antifungal pills
  • Topical antimicrobials, such as nail lacquer or cream
  • Laser therapy

Each of these medications can be used individually or in combination. To determine the best plan for your nails please speak with one of our well qualified physicians today. You can reach our office at (254) 776-6995.
