Do I have toenail fungus?
Toenail Fungus is unsightly, embarrassing, and can pose a risk to those who live with diabetes and other disorders. In order to tackle this particular issue, it is necessary to recognize the signs of a fungal toenail infection.
The symptoms of toenail fungus (onychomycosis) start with nails that are discolored, dull or darkened, and missing the usual shine possessed by healthy nail tissue. A fungal infection can also cause toenails to become brittle, ragged, crumbly, and thickened. There might be a slightly foul odor present and some cases even lead to an infected nail separating from its nail bed (this condition is known as onycholysis).
When it comes to treatment for cases of fungal toenails, we have a couple of options and will work with you to identify the best one for you. Contact Brook Valley Podiatry today so we can restore your nails back to their healthy, natural state. Call our Spring Valley office at (845) 352-7507, or request your appointment at either location online.
