Fungal Nail Infections

Sunday, March 30th, 2014 Innovative Foot and Ankle

Fungal nail infections are a common foot problem. Thickened, brittle, discolored nail often indicate a fungal infection. In the beginning, these infections may not be painful but as time progresses pain may develop as the deformed nail causes pressure inside shoes. Fungi along with dirt often becomes trapped under the toenail, the nail then thickens, discolors and may even separate from the nail bed. Medication may be prescribed and sometimes surgery is required to remove the infected nail.
