Toenail Fungus Foot Soak

When an individual is living with a toenail fungus, they can experience any number of different annoying and unsightly symptoms. For example, a patient may have nails that are ragged and brittle in texture. A patient might also notice that their nails are slightly discolored. People who have toenail fungus can ask a trusted medical professional, like a podiatrist, how they can go about treating this condition. The answer can vary from patient to patient depending on the nature and severity of the condition. For example, a podiatrist might recommend that a patient perform a vinegar foot scrub in the future to prevent the development of the fungus. The reason for this recommendation is that vinegar has many antifungal and antibacterial properties that can prevent the onset of foot fungus. A vinegar foot soak also can soothe dry skin on the feet. If you currently have toenail fungus, it is suggested that you contact a podiatrist today for treatment.

For more information about treatment, contact Troy Wilde, DPM of Practice. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Toenail Fungus Treatment

Toenail fungus is a condition that affects many people and can be especially hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several methods to go about treating and avoiding it.

Antifungals & Deterrence

Oral antifungal medicine has been shown to be effective in many cases. It is important to consult with a podiatrist to determine the proper regiment for you, or potentially explore other options.

Applying foot powder on the feet and shoes helps keep the feet free of moisture and sweat.

Sandals or open toed shoes – Wearing these will allow air movement and help keep feet dry. They also expose your feet to light, which fungus cannot tolerate. Socks with moisture wicking material also help as well.
