WILMETTE, IL, January 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- While summer may seem like a lifetime away with the cold weather Chicago has been experiencing, North Shore area foot and ankle specialist, Dr. Gary Rogers, wants to help his patients eliminate this annoying and embarrassing infection. The best way to eliminate toenail fungus is to visit Wilmette Foot and Ankle Clinic for proper treatment. However, there are also ways patients can treat and prevent this common annoyance, and Dr. Rogers is available to offer helpful tips this winter season.
"Toenail fungus can be annoying, painful and embarrassing. While we are in the middle of winter, that doesn't mean you should ignore your toenail fungus. Instead, it is important to visit my office for treatment and to learn more about how you can prevent toenail fungus, even when your toes are in hiding," said Dr. Gary Rogers, a foot and ankle specialist serving North Shore and Wilmette, IL.
Dr. Rogers works with his patients to recommend the best methods for fungal removal in North Shore, as well as tips for preventing it from recurring. Toenail fungus that persists and becomes painful can result in more serious health conditions and loss of the nail, which makes it important that patients visit North Shore area podiatrist, Dr. Rogers and his team of podiatric professionals for proper care immediately.
Many factors contribute to toenail fungus, and those who suffer from diabetes, circulatory problems or immune-deficiency conditions are especially prone to fungal nails. Eliminating toenail fungus can be difficult, so it is always a good idea to practice good foot care in order to prevent the fungus from developing. North Shore, IL area podiatrist, Dr. Gary Rogers, offers the following tips for maintaining healthy feet and preventing fungal nail infections:
- Exercise proper hygiene and regularly inspect your feet and toes.
- Keep your feet clean and dry.
- Wear shower shoes in public facilities whenever possible.
- Clip nails straight across so that the nail does not extend beyond the tip of the toe.
- Use a quality foot powder (talcum, not cornstarch) in conjunction with shoes that fit well and are made of materials that breathe.
- Avoid wearing excessively tight hosiery, which promotes moisture. Socks made of synthetic fiber tend to "wick" away moisture faster than cotton or wool socks, especially for those with more active lifestyles.
- Disinfect home pedicure tools and don't apply polish to nails suspected of infection.
But when prevention doesn't work, Dr. Gary Rogers and his team of podiatric professionals in Wilmette are available to offer improved treatment with the PinPointe FootLaser. Toenail fungus is bothersome, but is doesn't have to be permanent. At Wilmette Foot and Ankle Clinic, Dr. Gary Rogers offers various treatments to help patients achieve natural, beautiful nails. Patients are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rogers to discuss the best options for fungal removal.
