When it's sandal weather, the pool and beach beckon — and that means naked, exposed toes. That thought fills millions of Americans with dread, because they are host to an organism that's ruining the appearance of their nails. "They are keratin-loving species," explained Temple University podiatrist Dr. Tracey Vlahovic. Her sub-specialty within that field is dermatology, so, pretty much anything that makes the rest of us go yuck. "I don't think it's 'yuck.' I think it's fantastic. I love treating fungus and warts," said Vlahovic with a chuckle.

People who have chronic athlete's foot are at risk for developing toenail fungus, and there seems to be a genetic predisposition. Sometimes, the fungus gets into the nail bed after the nail was cracked or cut too short. The fungus also lurks in shared showers, around pools — and a lot of Vlahovic's patients tell her their troubles started after getting a pedicure.
