Treating Toenail Fungus Could Treat Other Skin Concerns!

Treating toenail fungus can be embarrassing and difficult to treat. Although extremely common, toenail fungus has few options for treatments. Of these few options, the majority do not deliver the desired results. The fungus is highly contagious, when the infection has wedged itself under the nail it will spread to other nails. As a result of the fungus, the nail often becomes yellow, or discolored, and brittle. Certain types of discoloration are called as toenail lesions. These are linked with a certain type of toenail fungus. A podiatrist will be able to look at the fungus and differentiate which type of fungus is present under the nail. There is also a high likelihood that the toenail fungus has been coexisting with another skin condition. It is very common for a fungal infection to mask another skin disease such as psoriasis. At times there could be another fungal infection present, these infections can spread to the rest of the body. This increases the risk of infecting someone else and makes the condition more difficult to treat as the afflicted area becomes larger and more complex.
