Fungal Toenail Treatment Warminster

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. We also provide Amniotic Fluid Injections to help with any other foot pain you may be experiencing.

If you have yellow, brittle toenails, you may have toenail fungus and need our Southeast Pennsylvania & Newtown diabetic footcare. 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.

Can You Cure Toenail Fungus with Laser Treatment?

Yes. Laser treatment is an FDA-approved treatment for toenail fungus infection. There are several types of laser treatments used to treat toenail fungus. These laser treatments are safe and cause minimal pain to the infected area. Depending on the individual and severity of the infection, the toenail fungus may require multiple laser treatment sessions to remove the infection completely.

Is Laser Treatment Painful?

Laser treatment generally causes very little pain that is manageable for most patients. The procedure is also very quick, most laser treatments are completed in 10 minutes or less. The laser feeling is comparable to a mild stinging sensation. The amount of pain will depend on the patient and their level of pain tolerance. However, laser treatment is an excellent treatment method for warts, ingrown toenails, foot skin abnormalities and more without using anesthesia, incisions, or having to deal with a long recovery time.

Treatment & Prevention of Toenail Fungus

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
