Fungal Toenail Treatment


Toenails infected with nail fungus appear thicker than normal with discoloration below the toenail. Nail fungus may first appear as small white or yellow spots under the tip of the toenail.


As the toenail become increasingly infected the nail may thicken and discolor as well as develop cracked or crumbling edges. Infected nails can separate from the toe causing pain.


If left untreated the infection could spread to adjacent toes and become painful, hindering mobility.

• A thickening and hardening of the toenail. • Brittle, crumbly or ragged edge to the toenail. • Distorted nail shape. • Yellowing or discoloration of the toenail. • Foul odor coming from toenail.

Options for treatment may vary based on the length of time and the severity of toe nail infection at the time of diagnosis.
