To treat, we may need to remove one side of your nail back to the cuticle and to treat the root of the nail. You may also require antibiotics. Sometimes temporary or permanent removal of the entire nail is needed. If the nail is thick, we can thin it by filing or grinding. Oral and topical medications are available to treat fungus.

Are your nails discolored?

This could be a sign of fungus.  Bruising of nails usually occurs in sports that involve running or stopping quickly.   It can also occur if a heavy object drops on the toe.

Ingrown toenails can be caused by improper trimming, inherited nail deformities, injuries, fungal infections, or pressure. Come to be evaluated for infection and to treat the ingrown toenail.

We can help you with your ingrown toenails, fungus, or bruised nails.

Keeping your nails in good condition is important. If you find any signs of a problem, call us.

Prevention

To prevent these problems, wear the right shoes and trim your nails properly. Shoes with the right amount of wiggle room, supportive and made of natural materials are ideal. It is also best to cut your nails straight across.
