If the nails are infected, we will often cut or grind back the infected nail. Because the infected nail is dead, the removal of the nail is a painless procedure. We will suggest treatment that you can put on the infection.
Foot hygiene is of the utmost importance. You do not want the fungus to spread to your skin and cause tinea. Shoes need to be kept in a well-ventilated area. Socks or stockings need to be washed after each use, and infected nails need to be cut short. Also, you should visit your doctor or podiatrist regularly.
