Onychomycosis
 

Onychomycosis is a fungal infection of the toenails or fingernails. This condition causes fingernails or toenails to thicken, discolor, disfigure, and split. At first glance, onychomycosis appears to be only a cosmetic concern. However, without treatment, the toenails can become severely thickened, ingrown and chronically painful.


Risk factors making one more susceptible to onychomycosis include: 

  • Trauma
  • Advancing age
  • Poor health
  • Family history
  • Showering in communal showers—such as fitness clubs/Visiting nail salons.
  • Keeping nails nearly constantly covered with polish.



Treatment options include topical meds, oral meds, and the new Laser Therapy.  Laser therapy is a revolutionary new treatment for this condition and is now FDA approved.  We are proud to offer this treatment option to our patients beginning in June 2014.  Call Lake Grove Foot Care @ (631) 981-5287 to set up a consultation.
