Your nails can say a lot about you and your health. For people with strong and healthy fingernails and toenails, they may rarely consider their nails at all. However, when nail diseases or disorders manifest themselves, it can quickly become an impediment to enjoying daily life. Nail discoloration and other problems can also be an indicator that there are more serious underlying health issues that should be addressed. At Aloha Foot & Ankle Associates Mission Viejo CA, we are committed to helping our patients treat their nail disorders and address any health conditions that may be contributing to their nail problems.
People who suffer from nail disorders can often find themselves embarrassed by the appearance of their nails. This might make it difficult for you to discuss your concerns with a doctor as you struggle to come to terms with any discomfort you feel as a result of your nail problems. At Aloha Foot & Ankle Associates, we are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care for our patients in a welcoming and discreet office. We understand that discussing issues such as nail fungus or dysfunction can be difficult, but we welcome your questions. Our experienced podiatrists can provide effective treatment for a wide range of nail disorders, allowing you to enjoy healthier nails and more confidence in your appearance, while properly treating the underlying causes.
One of the most common nail disorders we treat is nail fungus. Nail fungus typically manifests as brown or yellow discoloration of the nail. Nails will also tend to become thicker as a result of the infection and may lift or separate from the nailbed underneath the nail. Nail fungus is more common in older individuals and those who are susceptible to athlete’s foot. It can also be more common in patients who are diagnosed with circulatory disorders or diabetes. At Aloha Foot & Ankle Associates, we can provide you with a precise diagnosis and effective treatment plan for your nail fungus. This will typically include a debridement procedure that will remove debris and the infected portions of the nail. This not only increases the efficacy of topical medications, but can relieve any discomfort you may be experiencing as a result of a thickened nail. You will also be prescribed a topical medication and/or an oral antifungal medication that will treat your nail fungus internally at the source.
For patients with ingrown nails, our experienced doctors can provide fast relief. Ingrown nails may result for a number of reasons. Many people may have a genetic predisposition, have suffered a nail injury, or even wear shoes that could increase their chances of developing ingrown nails. An ingrown nail is one that grows beneath the skin surrounding the nailbed. These nails can be red and swollen, as well as incredibly painful for patients who have them. When left untreated, ingrown nails can sometimes lead to other issues including an outgrowth of bone from beneath the nail itself. At Aloha Foot & Ankle Associates, we can safely remove ingrown nails, providing instant relief from the pressure of an ingrown nail, and allowing for healthier nail regrowth.
