Baring your feet in the warm summer months can be as traumatic for some people as putting on a bathing suit. Cracking, peeling skin, thick nails and nail fungus are just a few of the issues that can come between you and your prettiest sandals.

“Patients I see are mostly concerned about bunions and fungal nails,” said James Hirt, DPM, of Fenton Foot Care. “They’re worried that people will see their ‘ugly fungal nails’ and think their feet are dirty. Often, patients will paint the nails to hide the fungus. That’s not a good thing to do as it usually traps the fungus in and makes the condition worse.”
