This week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is shining the spotlight on a topic we usually shy away from: fungus. October 1st through 5th is the CDC’s Fungal Disease Awareness Week, bringing attention to fungal diseases and the importance of their early recognition, diagnosis, and treatment.

When it comes to treatment, however, motivation and adherence are often key. “For patients with toenail fungus, a long-term treatment, which is typically a year, due to how the nails grow, is important in treating the infection,” said Tracey Vlahovic, DPM, Professor, Department of Podiatric Medicine at Temple University. “To increase your chances of getting rid of toenail fungus for good, it’s important to keep all follow-up appointments with your healthcare practitioner and use your treatment as prescribed.
