Fungus can grow in the most unexpected places. Thriving in damp and darkness, fungus can take root in your feet. Many people deal with toenail fungus infections at some point in their lives.

Picking up an unwanted fungus

Mushrooms make a great addition to many dishes, but foot fungus is a less-welcome guest. You could be exposed to foot fungus in many locations, including public pools and locker rooms. 

You’re more likely to develop a fungal infection in your toenails if you have diabetes or a history of athlete’s foot. You may also notice that you become more prone to fungal infections as you age.

Once your feet pick up a fungus, it makes a home in the sensitive tissue around your nail bed. You’re most likely to develop fungal infections around your big toe, but any and all of your toes could potentially be affected. 

You may see spots or pale areas, or warping and thickening around the edges of your nail.

Toenail fungus infections don’t get better on their own. You need treatment to restore the health of your nails and nail beds. Without care, the fungal infection could spread and cause pain and redness around your nails, or, eventually, infections in your feet.

Professional anti-fungal treatment

While over-the-counter and home remedies for foot fungus exist, you might find that you don’t succeed in permanently addressing your fungal infection with these strategies. 

If so, turn to us at Town Center Foot & Ankle for expert treatment. We can help you clear up your foot fungus problems for good.
