Fungus nails (onychomycosis)
extremely common disorder.
Depending on your source, it is
estimated that between 7 and 40 million
adults in the United States have
some form of the condition.
Nail Fungus often presents itself as a
thickened, brittle nail with changes
in color that range from yellow-white
to gray to black. In many cases they
eventually cause pain and secondary
bacterial infections to toes and feet.
Tight shoes, minor injuries to toes,
untreated athletes foot, circulation
problems, diabetes and immune
problems (i.e. HIV) can all
contribute to this medical condition.
Nail fungus enjoys dark, moist,
and warm areas to grow.
What better place is there than
a foot inside a shoe?
All the environmental factors
are there for its growth.
Dr. Chairman Comments:
"Recently, there have been great
treating this resistant problem.
Oral and topical medications have
passed FDA scrutiny and are available
by prescription. While the oral medication
has some side effects with a small
percentage of people, it offers the patient
an opportunity to finally rid themselves
of a problem that has plagued them
for years. With proper monitoring and
evaluation of a patient's medical history,
a good choice of treatment
can be made and administered."
"A new topical medication with
few side effects is also available.
While none of these medications are
100% effective, they can in combination
offer an excellent chance
of recovery and complete healing."
"Consultation and review of your
would be the step in initiating treatment."
