Do You Have Thick, Yellow, Discolored Toenails?
Are You Embarrassed To Wear Your Open-Toed Shoes In Public?

You May Have Fungal Toenails, A Condition Also Known As Onychomycosis.

Our Podiatrist In Lackawanna, NY treats toenail fungus with laser therapy

Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that grows in and under the nail. The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another.

They include topical medications, oral medications, which can have some serious side effects; and the newest modality which is laser therapy.

Some common Symptoms of Ingrown Nails:

  • Inflammation

  • Pain

  • Redness

  • Swelling

  • Drainage

An ingrown toenail occurs when a corner of the nail grows into the flesh of the toe, causing redness and swelling, followed by pain and often infection. Ingrown toenails can occur due to improper trimming of the toenail, trauma or genetic factors.

Treatment for ingrown toenails is performed by gently numbing the toe, and then removing the offending corner of the nail. If you have chronic ingrown toenails, we can remove the root in the office to permanently prevent re-growth of the ingrown portion of the nail.

Your treatment will be gentle and virtually painless, and we'll get you back to your normal activities. Reach out and schedule an appointment with us today.
