About Nail Fungus at Jeff Alexander M.D. Dermatology
Millions of American adults suffer the negative aesthetic effects of fungus beneath their toenails. This condition can cause the nails to appear unsightly and discolored, often thickening the nail and dying it an unpleasant yellow hue. Some cases can cause discomfort, and even in those that don’t the aesthetic effects of nail fungus can often cause self-consciousness about wearing open-toed shoes or going barefoot on the beach. While some over-the-counter remedies to nail fungus are available, they are not always completely effective and it is important to seek the help of a board certified dermatologist for a permanent fix to the problem.
