Common Symptoms of Toenail Fungus

Tuesday, 02 June 2020 00:00

Toenails that are yellow and have become thick can be indicative of a condition that is known as toenail fungus. It is considered to be a fungal infection, and it is extremely contagious. It can be passed between people in warm and moist environments that can include public pools, communal shower room floors, and locker rooms. Methods can be implemented which can help to prevent spreading this condition. These methods can consist of wearing appropriate shoes while in these types of areas, and to avoid sharing shoes, socks, and towels. There are several remedies that may be effective in controlling toenail fungus. If you are afflicted with this condition, it is strongly suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can discuss treatment options with you.

For more information about treatment, contact Dr. Thomas Tran of Southwestern Foot & Ankle Associates, P.C.. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Toenail Fungus Treatment

Toenail fungus is a condition that affects many people and can be especially hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several methods to go about treating and avoiding it.

Antifungals & Deterrence

Oral antifungal medicine has been shown to be effective in many cases. It is important to consult with a podiatrist to determine the proper regiment for you, or potentially explore other options.

Applying foot powder on the feet and shoes helps keep the feet free of moisture and sweat.

Sandals or open toed shoes – Wearing these will allow air movement and help keep feet dry. They also expose your feet to light, which fungus cannot tolerate. Socks with moisture wicking material also help as well.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office located in Frisco, TX. We offer the newest diagnostic tools and technology to treat your foot and ankle needs.
