Get Relief With Cutting-Edge Foot Care
Toenail fungus is an often embarrassing condition characterized by cracked and discolored toenails. Left untreated, nail fungus can lead to pain and discomfort as well as more severe conditions such as severely ingrown or broken toenails and infections. At Oklahoma Foot & Ankle Associates, our podiatrists have had success treating even the most stubborn cases of toenail fungus. By being on the cutting edge of toenail fungus treatment in Moore and Edmond, OK, we are able to deliver exceptional results to patients who believed their toenails would have to be hidden away forever.
What Causes Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is most commonly caused by dermatophyte fungus as well as yeast and mold. These microscopic fungi thrive in warm, moist environments and make their way into the body through tiny cuts or breaks in the skin.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus is typically characterized by nails that are:
- Separating from the nail bed
- Surrounded by a yellowish, foul-smelling build-up
How to Diagnosis Toenail Fungus
Given that other conditions such as psoriasis can mimic the look and symptoms of nail fungus, diagnosis is best made using a lab analysis of scrapings from under the nail in addition to a physical examination.
