Nail Fungus

Foot with corns and calluses

Nail fungus is a fungal infection in one or more of the nail. It can be found in the fingernails or toenails, and it typically begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of the nail. As the nail fungus spreads, it will go deeper into the nail and cause the nail to discolor, thicken, and develop rough, crumbling edges. Nail fungus is quite unattractive and can be a potentially painful problem. Once a nail fungal infection begins, it can persist indefinitely if not treated by a doctor.

At Medical Dermatology Specialists, we can properly diagnose nail fungus and effectively treat the fungal infection. Both men and women are affected by nail fungus, and those who are active and who sweat a lot are more apt to come down with a fungal infection. Sweaty shoes and socks, locker rooms and shared showers, and nail salons are popular sources of fungal infections that affect the nails. Dr. Jamie Weisman and her staff are dedicated to helping all of our patients find relief from nail fungus. It is highly important that people seek professional medical help at the first sign of a fungal infection as it spreads quickly and can become incredibly painful.
