Once you have been diagnosed with a fungal nail and you start treatment, it is very important to treat the environment as well.  This treatment includes treating the surrounding skin on the bottom of the feet and the skin in the inner spaces between the toes.  Very often, the same fungus that is infecting the toenail is also affecting skin as well.  In addition, your doctor may also recommend a shoe spray to use several times a week in order to rid the shoes of the fungus.  For more treatment options, make an appointment with one of our doctors by calling 630-834-3668.
