Fungal Nails and Athletes Foot

 Symptoms, Treatments and More!

Fungal Nails and Athletes foot are both caused by a dermatophyte. There is much literature linking genetic predisposition to these unsightly conditions. Nails which are yellowish and crumbly and skin which is scaly and red usually are typical. They may occur separately or together. A fungal culture can actually identify the specific pathogen responsible. Treatment may include OTC remedies. There are many prescription topical creams and lotions. More recalcitrant cases may be treated with oral tablets. Some of the medicines by mouth require monitoring of the liver blood test done prior to treatment and after one month of therapy. Results can vary. Early detection is very important to the prognosis.


Now at Family Podiatry we are excited to offer the new Hyperblue laser for the treatment of chronic toenail fungal infection.  This thirty minute procedure is painless, quick and safe and has no drugs or side effects.  Call Family Podiatry Associates for detail information or to schedule a consultation.
