Are you embarrassed by your feet because your toenails are thick and yellow? There’s a good chance you have toenail fungus. It’s time foot fungusto heal your toenails and feel comfortable going barefoot again! You may have tried over-the-counter antifungal creams only to find out your toenail fungus didn’t clear up.

It’s time to try professional treatments and get rid of toenail fungus for good. Your podiatrists at The Laser Nail Centers can help. They have offices in Fairfax, Reston, Mclean, and Ashburn, VA, to serve your needs.

The fungus causing toenail problems thrives in warm, moist environments like public pools and showers. It begins as a tiny yellowish-white spot underneath your toenail that increases in size as the fungus burrows deeper into your nail. You can tell you have toenail fungus if you experience:

  • Darkened, thickened or yellowed toenails
  • Toenails separated from your nail bed
  • Oddly shaped, bent or distorted toenails
  • Brittle, crumbly or ragged toenails
  • Foul foot odor

There are some steps you can take to prevent toenail fungus, including:

  • Always wearing flip-flops or sandals in public showers and bathrooms
  • Wearing moisture-wicking socks and breathable shoes
  • Washing and drying your feet regularly
  • Trimming and thinning your toenails to reduce toenail pressure
  • Using over-the-counter anti-fungal lotions or creams

If you do get a stubborn case of toenail fungus, you can get rid of it permanently by visiting your podiatrist for a laser toenail treatment. Your podiatrists at The Laser Nail Centers offer the Pedilase FootLaser Treatment to kill the fungi infecting your nail. The fungi absorb the light from the laser, causing heat which kills the fungi.
