Nail fungal infections are extremely common and very contagious. If a finger or toenail becomes infected, it can spread easily to other nails. It can also be spread to other people who use the same shower, shoes or pool area. Nail fungus can cause damage to the nail and pose health risks to some individuals. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers nail fungus treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.

Nail fungus is spread in locker rooms, spas, pools, nail salons and among family members. Nail fungus is easy to obtain, but more difficult to treat. The fungal infection can hide under the nail and require ongoing treatment to ensure the infection is completely eliminated. If a nail fungal infection is not treated, it can deform the nail, spread to other nails and even pose health risks for those with diabetes or immune system issues.

Symptoms of Nail Fungal Infections

Nail fungus will change the shape and color of your affected toe or fingernail. Some of the signs of nail fungus include:

  • Partial nail color changes – white, yellow or brown discolorations
  • The nail begins to lift up
  • Nail becomes thinner and softer
  • Nails split or crumble

Once the nail fungus infiltrates the entire nail bed, the whole nail can thicken and change color, turning yellow or brown. The appearance is unappealing, and the infection will continue to spread to other nails and people. While nail fungal infections are painless in the beginning, the nails can become painful as the infection grows, especially in toenails when wearing shoes.

Nail fungus treatment can include trimming away infected nail and skin. Topical medication that is applied to the nail may need to be used for months while the new nail grows out; oral medications may also be prescribed. In severe cases, the nail may need to be removed.

If you have symptoms of nail fungus, it is important to see a dermatologist right away for treatment. The quicker you receive treatment, the better chance you can stop the infection from spreading. Contact us at LM Medical NYC to schedule an appointment at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
