Toe nail fungus - we all have it.

Nail fungal infections are the most common diseases of the nails, making up about 50 percent of nail abnormalities. Fungus is normally present on the body, but if it overgrows, it can become a problem.

What does it look like?

Both fingernails and toenails are susceptible to infection, which usually appears as discoloration and thickening of the nail, and crumbling edges.

Why does it happen?

  • heavy perspiration

  • humid or moist work environment

  • wearing artificial nails

  • regular manicures and pedicures

  • wearing socks and shoes that prevent ventilation

  • walking barefoot in damp public places, such as swimming pools, gyms, and shower rooms

  • previous injury or infection to the skin or nail

  • tight footwear with crowding of toes

  • exercise that causes repeated minor trauma to the hyponychium, where the finger tip attaches to the nail

  • Preventative care and treatment options:

  • wearing shoes or sandals in public places and pools

  • ensuring that your manicure or pedicure salon properly sterilizes tools

  • using artificial nails and nail polish less often

  • washing hands after touching infected nails

  • avoiding sharing shoes and socks

  • keeping nails short, dry, and clean

  • wearing socks that breathe, usually synthetic

  • using anti-fungal sprays or powders

Because avoiding gyms, pools and mani/pedis is not likely to happen, Peach Medical Director, Maria Bueno, NP. recommends one Toenail Fungus Treatment per year along with exercising caution relation to hand and foot hygiene from the lists above.

The treatment requires polish-free toenails, very little pain is experienced during the treatment and post treatment, you’re able to resume normal, everyday activity!
