Nail fungus affects around 12% of American adults. This unsightly infection can cause discomfort and affect your self-confidence about your appearance. Treatment for this skin disorder can be challenging, as nail fungus can be stubborn to remove completely. Effective nail fungus treatment is provided by Medical Dermatology Specialists specialists in Lawrenceville for individuals throughout Gwinnett County.

Causes of Nail Fungus

Nail fungus infections are contagious and could be the result of skin-to-skin contact or touching contaminated surfaces. The risk for these skin infections may be reduced by thoroughly drying your feet after showers or swimming, practicing proper hygiene and sanitizing pedicure and manicure equipment. Wear shoes in public places and avoid cutting nails too short to prevent cuts where bacteria can enter. A dermatologist can recommend daily lifestyle habits to help you reduce your risks.

Symptoms of Nail Fungus

The symptoms of nail fungus can include white or yellow spots under the nail, nail debris, darkening, thickening, pain or foul smells. Walking barefoot in dark and moist environments or heavy sweating can cause this condition to develop. Individuals with diabetes or circulatory problems are at higher risk for nail fungus. A proper diagnosis by a dermatologist is necessary to eliminate the infection and prevent the condition from getting worse.

Nail Fungus Treatment Options in Lawrenceville

Antifungal medications and laser therapy are commonly used to treat nail fungus. It can take up to 18 months to achieve optimal results, depending on the severity of symptoms and your chosen treatment option. With severe cases, surgical removal of the nail may be necessary. A Lawrenceville dermatologist in Gwinnett County can recommend the best course of treatment. Before a treatment is prescribed, the medical dermatologist may trim infected nails to remove as much fungus as possible.

Nail Fungus Treatment in Lawrenceville You Can Trust

With professional treatment, you can eliminate unsightly nail fungus infections and feel better about your appearance. Delaying treatment can make this skin condition worse and create further complications to your overall health and well-being. The expert dermatologists at the Gwinnett County Medical Dermatology Specialists clinic in Lawrenceville can recommend a personalized treatment plan that is best for you.

Our Patient Reviews

Dr. Weisman was very professional, friendly, and engaged in conversation with terminology I would understand. Her beside manner was, quite frankly, surprising! It was one of the most comfortable visits I've ever experienced with a doctor.

I truly cannot express how thankful I am for this practice. I have been treated with kindness and immense care by every staff member I have encountered here. The nurses and assistants are beyond attentive and genuinely care for the patient. I have just received a treatment plan from Dr. Laura Biehl, and even if this particular treatment plan doesn't provide me relief, I am confident that Dr. Biehl will work to figure out a solution. She is extremely knowledgeable, listens to patient concerns, and takes time to answer patient questions. Dr. Biehl, and this practice are true gems. If you have any dermatological issues this practice is absolutely the best of the best.
