5-Star-Rated Podaitrist Offers Treatment for Toenail Fungus Infection in Warren, MI

You may have noticed a yellow or white spot under your fingernail – or more commonly – your toenail. The nail or nails may appear thicker, as well as brittle or broken around the edges. You may also notice dark spots or even an odor. Toenail fungus is also known as onychomycosis, and our board-certified podiatrist offers 5-star-rated treatment for toenail fungus infection in Warren, MI.

What Causes Toenail Fungus Infections?

While many types of yeasts, molds, and fungi can give rise to an infection, the most common type is dermatophyte, which affects hair and skin as well. Some of the risk factors include:

Age – Older adults are more susceptible to fungus infections, due to the reduced blood flow that comes with the aging process.

Excess Moisture – Heavily used communal areas like locker rooms, pools, and gyms are places where fungus grows and thrives.

Certain Medical Conditions – Diabetes, psoriasis, a weakened immune system, or circulation disorders make people more prone to getting fungal infections.

Brittle Nails – Cracks in your nails can be an entry point for fungi.

Steps You Can Take for Prevention

As with many conditions of the feet, taking the appropriate steps for prevention is key:

  • Choose breathable fabrics for both socks and footwear to prevent excess moisture buildup.
  • Wash your hands and feet daily – especially if you already have toenail fungus, as it can easily spread to your other nails.
  • Wear sandals when you use the gym showers or walk around the pool area or locker room.
  • Be sure to ask nail salons about their sterilization techniques between clients.
