Rescue Your Toenails From Painful Fungus

Rescue Your Toenails From Painful Fungus

Turn to Bozeman Foot and Ankle for expert footcare

Toenail fungus may not seem like a pressing issue, but if it goes untreated, it could spread to other toe and finger nails and impair your ability to walk. At the first sign on toenail fungus, call the specialists at Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic.

You're most likely to be exposed to toenail fungus when you walk around barefoot in damp areas. Swimming pools, locker rooms and showers are all hotspots for fungus infection. Those with diabetes, circulatory problems, a history of athlete's foot, excessive sweating or an immune deficiency are especially susceptible to toenail fungi.

If you notice discoloration, thickening or a deformity of your toenails, seek treatment from the experts at Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic. We can prescribe topical or oral medications. We can also perform a debridement to remove the nail matter. Discuss your symptoms with us today. Call 406-587-8478 for our Bozeman location.
