If you have to be treated for a related fungal toenail infection, we are very pleased to be able to provide fungal toenail laser treatment. It is very important that fungal toenails are treated because if left untreated they can lead to dangerous blood infections – especially in patients who suffer with diabetes or other medical problems.
Some of the symptoms of athlete’s foot are a severe cracking, scaling, or peeling of the skin on the foot. You probably also have blisters on your feet, including between your toes. You may see signs of bacterial infection which can include: pain, swelling, tenderness, red streaks in the affected area, or even a discharges of pus. Sometimes patients can have an elevated temperature which does not seem to be related to any other problem. If you have diabetes, it is especially important that you have this condition treated immediately. Additionally, if you have been trying to treat this problem with over-the-counter medications, and the infection does not improve after two weeks of treatment, we recommend that you contact us for Wheeling foot care. It may be recommended that those people who you share your household also come in for treatment as well, since athlete’s foot is extremely contagious.
