Nail Conditions

Nail conditions encompass a broad range of abnormalities affecting the nails, including fungal infections, trauma-related issues, inflammatory conditions, and systemic diseases. Fungal nail infections, specifically, are caused by various types of fungi, most commonly dermatophytes, which thrive in warm, moist environments. These infections often begin at the edge of the nail and gradually spread, causing discoloration, thickening, brittleness, and distortion of the nail.

Factors contributing to fungal nail infections include:

  • Prolonged exposure to moist environments
    (such as sweaty shoes or communal showers)

  • Compromised immune systems

  • Poor circulation

  • Aging

  • Certain medical conditions

  • Malignies


  • Topical medications

  • Oral medications

  • Laser therapy

  • Surgery

To schedule a consultation with one of our Dermatologists regarding nail treatment, a doctor's referral is required.
