Fungal Nails – Podiatrist in Dayton, OH



Treatment for Fungal Nails – Podiatrist in Dayton, OH Since fungal nails are usually more resistant and more difficult to treat than Athlete’s foot, topical or oral antifungal medications may be prescribed. Permanent nail removal is another possible form of treatment for fungal nails. After a fungal nail infection has cleared up, you can take steps to prevent the infection from coming back. Keeping the fungus under control will help prevent a fungal infection of the skin from reinfecting the nail. Before bed, thoroughly wash and dry your feet, and apply a non-prescription anti-fungal cream to the entire foot from the ankle down. Use the cream every night, then gradually apply it less often. Keep your feet dry. Dry feet are less likely to become infected. Apply powder to your dry feet after you take a shower or bath. Other tips: Don’t share nail clippers or nail files with others. Don’t share shoes or socks with others. Try not to injure your nail, such as by cutting it too short (trauma to the nail may lead to infections). Wear dry cotton socks, and change them two or three times a day if necessary. Wear dry shoes that allow air to circulate around your feet (tight, enclosed, moist shoes contribute to fungal toenail infections). Wear shower sandals or shower shoes when you are at a public pool or shower. Prevention Follow basic foot care guidelines and you more than likely can head off most common foot fungus problems.

Ingrown Toenails and Fungal Nails – Podiatrist in Clearwater, FL



Ingrown Toenails and Fungal Nails – Podiatrist in Clearwater, FL Ingrown toenails are due to the penetration of the edges of the nail plate into the soft tissue of the toe. It begins with a painful irritation that often becomes infected. With bacterial invasion, the nail margin becomes red and swollen often demonstrating drainage or pus. In people who have diabetes or poor circulation this relatively minor problem can be become quite severe. In this instance a simple ingrown toenail can result in gangrene of the toe. These patients should seek medical attention at the earliest sign of an ingrown toenail. There are several causes of ingrown toenails: a hereditary tendency to form ingrown toenails, improperly cutting the toenails either too short or cutting into the side of the nail and ill-fitting shoes can cause them. Children will often develop ingrown toenails as a result of pealing or tearing their toenails off instead of trimming them with a nail clipper. Once an ingrown toenail starts, they will often reoccur. Many people perform “bathroom” surgery to cut the nail margin out only to have it reoccur months later as the nail grows out. Treatment Treatment for ingrown toenails is relatively painless. The injection to numb the toe may hurt some, but a skilled doctor has techniques to minimize this discomfort. Once the toe is numb, the nail margin is removed and the nail root in this area is destroyed. The doctor may use an acid to kill the root of the nail, but other

Could shoes be the cause of a nail fungus?


Coo coo achoo asked:


I bought a pair of shoes and a couple months later I developed a nail fungus in the second toe on each foot (which I thought rather strange). I tried a bunch of topical solutions however they never really cleared the fungus up completely. I have a new pair of shoes now and haven’t applied anything to the nails in about 4 months and my nails are returning to normal. Could it have been something in the shoe that caused the problem in the first place? I very perplexed and grateful!
