Toenail Fungus


Have Your Nails Become Discolored?

If your nails have slowly become dark and discolored, cracked, or crumbled, you likely have toenail fungus (onychomycosis). The infection is spread mostly in warm and moist climates — including your bathroom and shower floor. It can be contagious. Accurate diagnosis guides the most effective treatments. We currently use advanced DNA analysis of the nails to determine the actual infecting organisms to come up with the most effective treatment plan.

If you believe that you have contracted this condition, it is vital that you schedule an appointment with Dr Betschart at Advanced Foot & Ankle immediately. This condition can often be associated with a number of other health concerns and should not be ignored.

If you’re relatively young and healthy when diagnosed with toenail fungus, treatment can be as simple as:

  • Nail reduction
  • Oral medications
  • Nail liquid or medicated polish

This condition also results in a high risk of  bacterial infection if you have poor circulation or a weak immune system, thus it is important that you get treatment as quickly as possible. To get started, please contact our office at (844) 375-7622 for a free consultation.
