Understanding Toenail Fungus
Even if you haven’t experienced it, you know about toenail fungus and its embarrassing effects. Toenail fungus is one of the most common dermatological disorders of the foot, and it affects about half of Americans by the age of 70. While this is a common infection, it is important to understand contributing factors so that you can avoid the onset of this embarrassing infection. Some factors that contribute to the development of toenail fungus include:
- A history of athlete’s foot
- Injury to the nail bed
- Sports/shoe trauma
- Excessive perspiration
- Circulatory problems
- Immune-deficiency conditions
Toenail fungus can be picked up in damp areas such as public gyms, shower stalls or swimming pools. And once you pick up the fungus, it can be passed to your family members as well, which is why it is important to visit our office for the best care available in Reston with laser toenail fungus treatment.
At the end of the day, why pay for 3 office visits, when you only need one with the PinPointe FootLaser? Visit our office today to learn more about toenail fungus laser treatment rom our Reston, VA podiatrist with the PinPointe FootLaser!
