Fungal nails are classified when the nail has become thickened and discolored, usually a yellow/brown on the surface of the nail plate. It may be due to trauma to the nail, congenital birth defects or circulatory problems. It can also be due to a fungal infection. Our Beverly Hills MI local podiatrist can identify what the actual problem is through clinical cultures. If the nail is infected it may start on one side of the nail, continuing on through. Most toenail fungus problems are painless and more cosmetically annoying than debilitating. Fungal nails are treated through oral medications, although those are not recommended to be taken for long periods of time. Before medication is administered, we take lab tests to get a culture to ensure fungus is actually present.
Our Beverly Hills MI local podiatrist may also prescribe topical medication that is available both by prescription and over the counter. This has proven very effective in treating fungal nails. Oral medication may be taken, but for long term use, this is not a viable method. Oral medications may harm the patient’s health and affect and change levels in the blood. Surgery for severe cases involves removing the nail plate and treating the infection from underneath. Opening up the nail bed makes it easier for topical medications to penetrate the area and treat the infection successfully. Because fungal nails can remain a constant issue, it is recommended that we monitor the area and treat accordingly when issues arise.
