What is a Toenail Fungal Infection?

Toenail fungal infections are very common and are caused by microscopic organisms called fungi.

Found most often in dark, warm and moist environments, fungi can enter through tiny cuts or separations between your nail and the nail bed. Once the infection begins, you may notice a small white or yellow spot on your nail. As the nail fungus spreads, your nail(s) may become discolored, thick and even develop crumbling edges. The same fungus that can turn your nails yellow can also cause Athlete’s foot, which results in red, itchy skin between your toes.

How can you treat a toenail fungus problem?

What is a Toenail Fungal InfectionFungal infections can be difficult to treat, as they tend to recur. For this reason, Dallas and Plano, TX foot specialists, Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt provide an extensive and complete program for treating fungal problems with feet and toenails. At your visit to our podiatric office, we will thoroughly examine your condition and evaluate the nature of your fungal problem, determine any potential underlying reasons, and start a treatment plan tailored just for you.

We are proud of the state-of-the-art treatment we provide, which includes our Q-Clear Laser. This procedure can completely eradicate your toenail fungus problemand have you bearing your toes proudly again in no time. Some patients have a sweat problem that contributes to their fungal infection and we have treatment for that as well.

Our treatment program includes the laser therapy, nail softening and removal, topical antifungal solutions and the use of the Vitamin B Biotin. This vitamin allows healthy nails to grow back. Many patients are very concerned about the appearance of their toenails in sandals or open-toed shoes and our KeryFlex treatment can restore your ugly toenails immediately to natural looking nails that last up to three months.

Don’t wait to treat a fungus problem or live with ugly toenails when you don’t have to. Order our free book, “The End of Your Ugly Toenails” today to learn more about this condition. To get started on a fungus program that will bring your feet and toenails back to full health for the summer, call our office today!

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
