Fungal Nail Infection
A fungal nail infection occurs in, under, or on the nail from the overgrowth of fungi. Fungi usually thrive in warm or moist environments causing them to naturally overpopulate which would further lead to athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm causing fungal nail infections.
If you have come in contact with someone who has a fungal infection then it may get contracted to you as well. Fungal infections affect toenails more than the fingernails, because these get confined to shoes that are usually used in a moist and warm environment. It can develop in people at any age, but it’s more prone for older adults.
The nail becomes brittle and dry as the nail ages. Other factors include weakened immune system and reduced blood circulation to the feet. These infections usually start at the cuticle surrounding the nail, which in turn becomes red, swollen, and tender to the touch. The nail itself may partially lift off or fall off from the nail bed completely.
How to prevent fungal nail infection?
- Wash your hands after touching infected nails
- Keep your feet dry after showering
- Get manicures or pedicures done from trustworthy salons.
- Reduce using artificial nails and nail polish
- Make sure to do a manicure or pedicure at a nail salon where they use sterilized tools for each customer.
Ingrown toenails occur in the corner or side of a toenail which grows into the soft flesh. It causes pain, redness, swelling and an infection. It usually affects your big toe.
If the pain spreads to other areas or if it is severe, our dermatologist provides an extensive treatment to help you relieve the discomfort so that you can avoid further complications of the ingrown nails. Diabetes or any other condition causing poor blood flow to your feet are the main reasons for the ingrown nail.
How to prevent ingrown nail?
- Try to trim your toenails straight across
- Wear perfect shoes
- Keep toenails to a minimum length
- Wear protective footwear
- Check your feet if you have diabetes or any other foot problems
Nail Treatment at Auroraa Clinic
Our dermatologist will treat you by cutting back the infected nail to the place of the attached part of your finger or toe or by trimming the infected nail(s). They may also scrape away debris under the nail to get rid of the fungus.
If you have a mild infection, you can apply medicine or take antifungal pills as recommended by our Dermatologist which can help you get rid of the infection. Fingernails typically grow out between 4 -6 months. Toenails usually grow between 12 – 18 months.
Probably the most difficult part of treating the fungal nail infection treatment is that some treatments must be applied every day or weekly once depending on the level of infection. To get the best results from the nail treatment, you have to follow the instructions exactly as directed by the Dermatologists.
We provide comprehensive treatment for the general medical conditions that cause nail problems. If you suffer any of the above conditions it is recommended to schedule an appointment with our talented dermatologists at Auroraa Clinic to check your nails regularly, or if you have any concerns for getting the best nail treatment.
