What is a Nail Fungus?
A Nail Fungal infection occurs when fungi attack your nails through small cuts in the skin around your nail or through the opening between your nail and nail bed. The fungus attacks a fingernail, a toenail, or the skin under the nail. If you are healthy, a fungal nail infection probably won't cause serious problems, however, it may look bad, hurt, or damage your nail or nail bed.
A fungal nail infection may lead to a more serious problems if you are a diabetes or have a weak immune system. It is important to get your doctor involved if you think you have a nail fungus infection. Doing nothing is not the way to handle this, treatment is easy to get and in most cases resolves the issue.
Yeasts, molds, and different kinds of fungi can cause fungal nail infections. Most are caused by the same type of fungus that causes athlete's foot. Fungi grow best in warm, moist places, and can spread by contact from person to person. You can get a fungal nail infection from walking barefoot in public showers or pools or by sharing personal items, such as towels and nail clippers. If you have athlete's foot, the fungus can spread from your skin to your nails.
A nail with a fungal infection may:
  • Turn yellow or white
  • Get thicker
  • Crumble and split, and it may separate from the skin.
Having a fungal infection in your nail can be uncomfortable or even painful to wear shoes, walk, or stand for a long time. The fungus could also spread to other nails or your skin and in time, the infection can cause permanent damage to your nail or nail bed.
There are nonprescription anti-fungal medicines that comes in a cream, lotion, or nail polish. If you choose to treat your nail fungal infection with one of these, keep good control over how the infection is progressing. If they do not begin to show improvement withing 1-2 weeks, Call Us! We will set an appointment for one of our dermatology specialists to discuss, and treat your nail fungus with a stronger medicine. Anti-fungal pills give the best chance of curing a severe fungal nail infection.
