Do you have a fungal infection on your nails that do not seem to get cured no matter how much topical medications you apply? Nail fungus or onychomycosis is actually a very common condition especially to people who are immunocompromised, those who have history of fungal infection, people who love going barefoot in public places, and those who get manicures and pedicures that use unsanitary equipment.
If you have a nail fungal infection, the nails become thick, yellowish or brownish, brittle, and misshapen. The condition could get worse, making it hard for you to grow your nails back to its healthy state. Also, it can affect the healthy nails. However, if you are pregnant, or with conditions like peripheral vascular diseases, peripheral neuropathy, and skin cancer, you may not be qualified to receive the treatment. To be sure, ask the board-certified podiatrists like us at Mattison Podiatry Group.
