Are one or more of your toenails discolored, thick, or odiferous? These may be signs of a fungal infection to the toenail. Nail fungus begins as a small yellow or white spot beneath the toenail.  As the infection goes deeper, the nail can discolor, thicken and begin to crumble at the edge. Needless to say, this can make going to the beach, wearing flip-flops, or generally being barefoot around others an embarrassing experience. If you have begun to notice symptoms like these, it’s important that you visit our office for care. Fungal toenails aren’t just a cosmetic issue. Without proper treatment they can become worse, cause pain, and even permanent damage to the toenails.
