Did you know your toenails are part of your largest organ in your body
– that being the skin?
Just as all our organ systems are very complex and interact with each other, our toenails and problems with them can equally be as complex. Discoloured, pitted, thick and difficult to attend to nails can be frustrating for you. Often, it can be the result of past nail trauma or a fungal infection.
As podiatrists, we have a vast experience in treating toenails and problems you have with them, often using simple and pain free methods. And don’t forget that if you are diabetic, it is strongly recommended that you have your toenails attended to professionally by a Podiatrist as incorrect nail cutting techniques and using non-sterilised and poor quality nail clippers can spell disaster! Diabetics have an increased risk of developing complications with their feet.
