toenail fungus treatmentYou already know that toenail fungus is unsightly, but did you know there are many more medical reasons to get it treated? Here they are!

  • Toenail fungus almost always gets worse if not treated.
  • Nails can become thickened and distorted. Once this happens your nails will never grow back normally.
  • Nails can become difficult to cut.
  • Nails can become painful.
  • Toenail fungus can spread to other parts of your body including your hands and groin.
  • Toenail fungus can spread to other members of your family. This is particularly problematic when you have vulnerable, immune-compromised people living with you. For example, nail fungus can triple a diabetic’s risk for developing limb-threatening foot ulcers.

For all these reasons, don’t put off getting nail fungus treated. Learn more about treatment here.
