FOOT AND TOENAIL FUNGUS TREATMENTS BY FOOT SPECIALIST IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO

FOOT FUNGUS THAT STARTS AT THE BASE OF THE NAIL AND RAISES THE NAIL UP :   IT IS CALLED "PROXIMAL SUBUNGAL ONYCHOMYCHOSIS."  THIS IS THE LEAST COMMON TYPE OF FUNGAL NAIL(3%).  IT IS SIMILIAR TO THE DISTAL TYPE, BUT IT STARTS AT THE CUTICLE (BASE OF NAIL)  AND SLOWLY SPREADS TOWARDS THE NAIL TIP.  THIS TYPE ALMOST ALWAYS OCCURS IN PEOPLE WITH A DAMAGED IMMUNE SYSTEM.

YEAST ONYCHOMYCHOSIS :  THIS TYPE IS CAUSED BY A YEAST CALLED CANDIDA AND NOT BY THE TRICHOPHYTON FUNGUS NAMED ABOVE.  IT IS MORE COMMON IN FINGERNAILS.  CANDIDA CAN CAUSE YELLOW, BROWN WHITE, OR THICKENED NAILS.  SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE THIS INFECTION ALSO HAVE YEAST IN THEIR  MOUTH OR HAVE A CHRONIC PARONYCHIA THAT IS ALSO INFECTED WITH YEAST.

PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU SUFFER FROM FUNGAL INFECTIONS OF THE NAIL AS WE HAVE THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY AVAILABLE IN LASER TREATMENT.
