Nail Fungus Treatment in Albuquerque
While nail fungus may appear to be a cosmetic problem for patients in the Albuquerque area and elsewhere, the condition is actually considered to be medical in nature. While it may clear up on its own, nail fungus sometimes requires a prescription—and even then, the condition can be a stubborn one.
What starts as a small, light-colored patch beneath a nail on either your foot or hand can grow into a bigger problem of thickening and discoloration. The effects of nail fungus may be strictly aesthetic — infected nails can grow in yellow and misshapen — but can also cause discomfort and even pain to sufferers. In some cases, the condition can lead to permanent nail damage, so a doctor’s assessment can be a helpful tool in preventing a long-term problem from getting out of control.
