Fungus Toenails Treatment
Specialty Physician Consultation – 1-hour examination and assessment with related review and treatment recommendations.
Fungal infections are common on both fingernails and toenails.
Toenail fungus also known as onychomycosis is caused by a group of fungus called dermatophytes. These fungi are harmful because as they grow they feed on the keratin that makes up the surface of the toenail. The big toe and the little toe are the most susceptible to paronychia, an infection of the soft tissue around the nail.
Toenail fungus causes disfiguration and discoloration of the nails. It is a contagious disease and sometimes it may be hereditary.
The fungus toenails treatment cost includes a one-hour consultation with a specialist. Not included are diagnostic studies, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
