Discoloration or other changes in nails are common and can be caused by a variety of things including fungal or bacterial infections, psoriasis, genetics, or normal aging. If you have a weakened immune system, treatment is important. Untreated infections can result in a sore that may not heal.
Nail fungus can be contracted from a warm, moist place like a locker room or pool deck. It can also be the result of wearing sweaty shoes, or trapping moisture around your fingernails or toenails.
Our providers can determine the cause of nail disorders and create a personalized treatment plan for patients.
If you have been diagnosed with onychomycosis (infected toenails) and would like to be considered for a research study, please visit our partner organization, Skin Search.
