As the summer heat nears, it is time to be getting your feet ready for sandals. People who suffer from yellow, thick, crumbly nails often dislike this time of the year. They do not like to show their nails due to ugly toenails and hide them in shoes or with nail polish. To restore nails to their original condition, the opposite should be done.
Summer is the perfect time to treat toenail fungus. The fungus growing under the nail bed thrives in climates that are warm, dark, and moist. This is the exact environment created within shoes. Summer offers the opportunity to completely change this environment. A combination of sunlight and fresh air will help dry out your nails and allow UV light to penetrate the thick nail plate. Exposing your toes also means not wearing any nail polish or other product on your nails as these can protect the fungus.
Just exposing your nails to the summer environment will not be enough. It is important to visit the podiatrists at Coastal Podiatry Associates. They are trained in the latest techniques and products to aid your fight against toenail fungus. The doctors at Coastal Podiatry Associates will guide you through the process and help you reach the results you desire.
