Why are my toenails thick and ugly?


Thick, ugly toenails are usually due to fungal infections of the nails. This condition is called onychomycosis and can be challenging to treat.  Topical medications are available but are of minimal efficacy.  Oral medications are available, and are effective 65-70% of the time, but carry with them the potential for liver toxicity.  

Dallas Podiatry Works offers state-of-the-art treatments to treat your fungal nails. We use the QClear™ laser procedure which is safe, painless and effective more than 80% of the time in most patients.
