It is very important to treat fungal infections of the foot early. This is because fungal infections on the foot, or in the nail, can end up traveling to other parts of the body and cause serious medical issues, including blood infections. This is particularly true for patients who have diabetes, so it is always recommended that our diabetic patients come in for a periodic and preventive foot care visits. A fungal nail infection can first start out as a white or yellow spot that appears under the tip of your toenail. Eventually, if left untreated, the nail fungus will spread deeper into your nail. This can cause the nail to discolor, thicken, and even develop edges that crumble. Fungal toenails our not only extremely unattractive, but they can also be potentially painful. At our podiatry practice, our foot doctor is able to treat your fungal toenails with Whitestone laser foot care. We use the PinPointe laser technology which will effectively kill the fungus that lives in and under the toenail. This treatment is easy and convenient, and your toenails can once again become clearer and healthier. Fungal toenails can also be treated with medication, however, fungal infections can be extremely difficult to cure as they can be persistent and resistant to treatment with medications alone. This is why so many patients come to us for Whitestone laser foot care when they have fungal toenail problems. A fungal toenail infection can be part of a general athlete’s foot infection which also can affect the skin on your foot.
