Nail Fungus: How to Treat It

Your shoes are the perfect environment for fungus to grow. Fungus likes moist, dark, warm areas. Your shoes check off all three of these boxes. Not only do your shoes allow fungus to grow, but they allow fungus to thrive. Nail fungus is similar to the fungus that causes athlete’s foot. The only difference is that it affects the nails.

Nail fungus is very contagious. If you share nail clippers with someone, walk around barefoot in an area where a person who has nail fungus has walked, or even swim in a public pool, you are at risk of getting the fungus. Thankfully, there are safe and effective treatments available that might be right for you.

Do I Have Nail Fungus?

There are a number of symptoms that may indicate that you are dealing with nail fungus. For example, are your nails brittle or crumbly? Would you describe the appearance of your nails as being ragged? You may be battling with fungus.

People who have this type of fungus have nails that are very thick. It can be difficult, if not impossible, to cut them. Your nails may be discolored and have a distorted shape. Your feet may even have a foul odor.

Nail fungus does not disappear on its own. It will only get worse with time. This is why if you feel you are battling with it, we invite you to visit our office. Let us look at your nails and provide you with the right solution.

If you have diabetes or a compromised immune system, it is even more important that you take steps to address your situation. If not treated, it can lead to serious infections that can negatively affect your health.

What are the Available Treatment Options?

One of the best ways to address nail fungus is to use laser treatments. Laser treatments use energy to safely and permanently kill the fungus.

Don’t procrastinate when it comes to treating your nail fungus. There is absolutely no way that the fungus is going to get better on its own. Talk to one of our professionals at Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Abilene to learn more. Contact us today for a consultation!
