Nail Fungus

A fungal nail infection can be more than an embarrassing cosmetic problem. Damaged, thick toenails can cause pain while wearing shoes and especially while standing, walking, working, or playing sports.

Untreated toenail fungus can lead to more serious problems

  • spread to other toenails or the toenails of other family members
  • cause chronic fungal skin infections
  • cause pain while in shoes or when walking
  • allow bacteria to enter the skin creating more serious infections
  • cause permanent nail disfigurement
  • play a role in diabetic foot infections and even lead to amputation

Treatment

After a thorough examination and consultation, the doctors at Mount Kisco Foot Specialists, PLLC will help you decide on what treatment options most suit your needs. Before starting certain therapies, laboratory studies may need to be performed. Certain treatments may also require periodic blood work. The treatment options may include:

  • Periodic debridement of the toenails to decrease thickness
  • Topical Medications
  • Oral Medications
  • Laser Treatment
