Toe Nail Fungus (Onychomycosis)

The medical term for a fungal infection of the nails is onychomycosis. It’s not a very serious condition, but it is chronic and contagious. It looks really disgusting too.

Onychomycosis Treatment

Onychomycosis, commonly known as toenail fungus, is a condition where the toenails become thick, discoloured and look like they may crumble at the edges. We provide treatment for toenail fungus, which not only improves the appearance of the nail but can make the nail healthy again if completely treated.

Toenail fungus treatment options may involve topical as well as oral antifungal medications. The specific treatment will depend on the extent of the fungal infection and overall health status of the patient. Laser treatment options may also be considered in some cases.

We have podiatrists that stay up-to-date on new treatments as they become available that are committed to giving the best treatment available. Also, patient education is a key component of our treatment plan so that you can take an active part in your treatment and limit the possibility of recurrence. This means that we provide effective and cost efficient treatment that keeps you comfortable and allows you to resume your activities, and that limits the chance of returning.

Our podiatrists will advise you of simple measures you can take to avoid the problem recurring. For example, we may show you how to keep your foot dry, or recommend particular footwear.

Distance yourself from unsightly, uncomfortable toenail fungus with the expertise of Doveston Health. Eliminate fungal infections that drain your self-esteem; consult our on-staff professionals on substitutions to feel more comfortable.
