The dark, moist surroundings created by shoes and stockings make the feet especially susceptible to a fungal infection. Various types of fungi are present everywhere in the environment and most fungi are harmless until they penetrate the skin.
A fungus can invade through minor cuts or after injury. Repeated irritation to the toes may cause the nail to separate from the bed. Fungal infections of the nail plate, also known as onychomycosis and nail matrix, are the most common nail disease.
We take a cutting-edge approach to your nail problems. Whether the solution is as simple as an over-the-counter drug or taking advantage of laser technology, we care about your feet.
