Have you noticed that your toe nails simply don’t look very good? Are they yellowed, warped, or crumble easily? If this is the case you may very well have a toenail fungus. If this is the case you will want to see our podiatrist for Brooklyn fungal nails care.
Our practice is Dr. Howard Dinowitz. Dr. Dinowitz has extensive experience in diagnosing and treating foot and ankle deformities, sports and walking problems diabetic feet, and foot injuries and wounds. Many of his patients come in to see him for Brooklyn fungal nails care. Fungal nails are actually a part of Athlete’s foot. It is a highly contagious foot condition that can be somewhat avoided by always wearing footwear in damp, common areas. It is important to always make sure that if you do have fungal nails that they are treated immediately. Fungal nail infections can start out as a white or a yellow spot under the tip of your toenail. Over time, the fungus will spread deeper under the nail if not treated. This will cause the nail to discolor, thicken or even develop edges that crumble. Fungal toenails are not only unattractive, they can be painful for the patient. If left untreated fungal toenails can spread to other parts of the body and cause serious blood infections.
Brooklyn fungal nails care can take several forms. Dr. Dinowitz is able to prescribe a medicine that will be taken every day over a course for a few months. Since fungal infections often reoccur, it is imperative that treatment continues until the fungal infection has been completely removed from your body. However, oral treatments for fungal infections are not right for everyone. They can interact with other medications you are taking. When you come to our practice for fungal nail treatment, our podiatrist will completely evaluate your situation and decide upon the proper course of treatment. Our podiatrist may also want to prescribe a topical cream for you to use on the infected nails. This cream is comparable to the oral medication in terms of effectiveness. Our podiatrist also treats a wide array of other foot problems. If you would like an appointment to meet with our podiatrist, Dr. Dinowitz, please call our office today.
