Halloween and Nail Fungus Can Both Cause a Scare

If you want to get into the Halloween spirit, check out the Reindeer Manor in Red Oak, TX, going on until November 8, 2014. This is the oldest haunted attraction in Texas and one of the oldest continuously-running haunts in the world—be prepared for some thrills and chills!

Something else that can be a little frightening? Nail fungus. Unsightly, discolored nails can bring a chill of its own, but you don’t have to dress up like a zombie every year just to try and cover it up—we have treatment that will zap it!

dallas toenail treatmentYou may be wondering how this nail problem happens in the first place. It is caused by a microscopic organism that typically lives in warm, moist environments. Going barefoot in a public shower, locker room, or pool area, for example, would put you at risk. The fungus can creep in through an injury on your nail bed or a small crack between your toe and the nail plate. Once there, it grows and festers and breaks down the nail tissue. This is what causes the discoloration, brittleness, and thickening of the toenail. Over time it can cause the nail to smell, crack, and lift off the toe completely. In addition to being unsightly, it can also be painful and the risk of infection can be serious, especially for someone with diabetes.

If you already have discolored, crumbling toes, have no fear! At Dallas Podiatry Works we have a state-of-the-art treatment process called the Q Clear™ Laser. Sure, you can get a topical cream that may mask the problem for a bit, but why not get rid of it completely? This laser targets the fungus growing under the nail and destroys it. It does not damage the nail or surrounding skin or tissues and allows the body to start growing a healthy, new nail right away. It does take some time for the nail to grow out, so if you are concerned about the look of your toenails now, ask us about our KeryFlex™ toenail restoration treatment as well.

"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
