Fungus that has affected all the toenails

Onychomycosis– means fungal infection of the nail. It is the most common disease of the nails and most of us do not even know we have it until it has spread to all of the nails. Early treatment is key!

 

 

This condition may affect toenails or fingernails, but toenail infections are particularly common. This affects almost 20% of the adult population. Many of our patients come in for other conditions and do not realize that they have this. We are happy to treat this and many other feet or ankle problems that you might have.

Fungus nails can start as simple as this mild case. Left untreated fungus can migrate nail to nail becoming as bad as the case above.
