The Earth Rock Run is happening soon in North Andover, and you will want your feet to be pain free before the starting gun blasts. Toenail fungus can be a painful condition that will cramp your racing style. Laser treatment is a painless treatment for fungal nails that will get your feet race-ready.
Nail fungus is a condition that is contracted via public places such as a gym shower. It thrives in moist, warm areas like your shoe, and it infects your nails quickly. It can cause discoloration, thickening, and pain in the nail area.
There are different treatment options, but one of the most effective ways to end embarrassing fungal nails is by laser treatment. A laser pinpoints the infection and destroys it. It is a painless procedure because the laser works with specific wavelengths, and they target only the living fungi. However, this procedure does not result in the fungus being gone forever—it can grow back.
With fungus it’s just as important to think about prevention of another infection. It can be more difficult to get rid of a fungus once it has made itself a nice, cozy home. Only a change of shoes and taking good care of your feet will stop the fungus from returning.
Call Dr. Mitchell Wachtel at (888) 616-2512 to schedule an appointment in one of our three Massachusetts office locations. Ask for more information about how laser treatment can help treat your fungal nails. We are here to help make your feet fungus-free and ready to race. Don’t suffer the unnecessary pain of this infection any longer.
