How to Treat Fungus on Your Toes

If you aren’t confident with the appearance of your feet, you may be reluctant to show them off. A woman named Nora Presti claims she has an “ugly toenail” and decided to have it checked by two different doctors. Both doctors expressed concern that Presti had a melanoma in her nail. Although tests came back negative, she was able to discover that she has toenail fungus. If you think you may have toenail fungus or are experiencing any symptoms related to toenail fungus, a consultation with a podiatrist is advised.  

For more information about treatment, contact Dr. Jeffrey Wachtel of Wachtel Family Foot Care. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Toenail Fungus Treatment

Toenail fungus is a condition that affects many people and can be especially hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several methods to go about treating and avoiding it.

Antifungals & Deterrence

Oral antifungal medicine has been shown to be effective in many cases. It is important to consult with a podiatrist to determine the proper regiment for you, or potentially explore other options.

Applying foot powder on the feet and shoes helps keep the feet free of moisture and sweat.

Sandals or open toed shoes – Wearing these will allow air movement and help keep feet dry. They also expose your feet to light, which fungus cannot tolerate. Socks with moisture wicking material also help as well.
