Southeast Pennsylvania Fungal Toenail Treatment

Care & Prevention for Fungal Nails

Toenails can provide fungus with a prime environment for growth, making toenail fungus one of the most common foot problems. Some cases of nail fungus are mild and may only manifest as a discoloration under the nail. In more serious cases, they can cause pain, discomfort, odors, and toe deformities.

If you have yellow, brittle toenails, you may have toenail fungus. This condition is contagious and should be treated promptly to stop it from spreading to family members or other parts of your body. At Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers, we offer quick, painless, and minimally-invasive toenail fungus treatment in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Symptoms of Toenail Fungus

In its earliest stages, toenail fungus is usually harmless. You may first notice a yellow or white discoloration under the nail. As the fungus grows, the nail will weaken and the discoloration will worsen. An odor may also start to develop.

Some warning signs of toenail fungus include:

  • Thickened nails
  • White, yellow, or brown discolorations
  • A bulge underneath the nail
  • Unusual odors
  • Brittle nails
  • Flaking white areas on the nail surface

Symptoms of toenail fungus are similar to several other foot conditions. It is important to see a doctor and have them make an official diagnosis

Treatment & Prevention

While there are many over-the-counter remedies for fungal nails, these rarely produce the desired results. A non-prescription remedy may provide temporary relief, but toenail fungus often comes back if it is not thoroughly wiped out during the initial treatment. Prescription medications and additional treatment from a podiatrist is the most reliable means of getting permanent results.

There are several preventative measures you can take to keep toenail fungus away after you’ve had it removed:

  • Throw away shoes you wore when the infection developed (If this is not an option, clean thoroughly with disinfectants)
  • Wash your feet regularly
  • Keep nails neatly trimmed with disinfected clippers
  • Wear shoes that let your feet breath
  • Wear foot protection around swimming pools and in locker rooms
