Fungal Skin and Nail Infections

Fungal Skin and Nail Infections

Athletes Foot (Tinea Pedis) is a common fungal infection of the skin caused by the tinea pedis microbe. The signs of tinea include itchiness, redness, scaling/flaking and peeling skin between the toes and foot.

Fungal infections in the toe nails can be unsightly and are very common. Fungal Toenails (onychomycosis) are thickened, discoloured nails with a build-up of debris below the nail plate due to the infection. They present discoloured usually white, black, yellow or green. As the infection develops the nail can become brittle and pieces break away easily. If not treated the skin can become inflamed and painful underneath and around the nail.

At Penrith Podiatry we can help:

  • Determine the appropriate antifungal medication to treat the nail
  • Cut/file the nail
