Fungal nail infections, also known as onychomycosis, can be both unsightly and uncomfortable. At Wigley Feet, our expert podiatrists are dedicated to providing effective treatments that address fungal nail infections and help you achieve healthier, clearer nails.
Understanding Fungal Nail Infections: Fungal nail infections occur when fungi, such as dermatophytes, thrive in warm and moist environments, like those found in shoes and socks. These infections can cause nails to become discolored, brittle, and thickened. Fungal nail infections are common and can affect one or more nails on both the hands and feet.
Our Approach to Treatment: At Wigley Feet, we understand the impact that fungal nail infections can have on your self-confidence and foot health. Our comprehensive approach to treatment includes the following steps:
Comprehensive Assessment: Our experienced podiatrists will thoroughly examine your affected nails and assess the extent of the fungal infection. This evaluation helps us determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
Accurate Diagnosis: Precise diagnosis is crucial for effective treatment. We may use diagnostic tests, such as nail clippings or microscopy, to confirm the presence of fungal infection.
Topical Antifungal Treatments: For mild to moderate fungal nail infections, topical antifungal medications may be prescribed. These medications are applied directly to the affected nail and aim to eliminate the fungal infection.
Oral Antifungal Medications: In more severe cases or when topical treatments are ineffective, our podiatrists may recommend oral antifungal medications. These medications work from within the body to target the fungal infection.
Laser Therapy: Wigley Feet offers advanced laser therapy as a non-invasive option for treating fungal nail infections. Laser therapy targets the fungi without causing damage to the surrounding tissues.
Nail Care and Prevention: We provide guidance on proper nail care practices and prevention strategies to minimize the risk of fungal nail infections in the future. This includes tips on keeping nails clean, wearing breathable footwear, and avoiding sharing personal items.
Rediscover Healthy Nails: At Wigley Feet, our priority is to help you regain the confidence of healthy nails. Our personalized treatment plans are designed to address fungal nail infections effectively, promoting clearer, more attractive nails and improved overall foot health.
