TOENAIL AND SKIN CONDITIONS

Our Foot Doctor In Sewell & Cherry Hill, NJ Can Help With Your Toenail Or Skin Problems

FUNGAL TOENAILS

MANY TOENAIL FUNGUS TREATMENT OPTIONS, INCLUDING MEDICATION & LASER  

Do you have thick, yellow, discolored toenails? Are you embarrassed to wearyour open-toed shoes in public?  Chances are you have fungal toenails, a condition also known as onychomycosis. 

Fungal toenails are caused by an organism that growsin and under the nail. The fungus likes to grow in warm, moist places like your shoes. Many patients pick up fungal toenail infections in the gym locker room, from a nail salon, wet shoes or from trauma. Fungus can stay in the nails for many years and can be passed from one person to another. 

There are currently 3 treatment modalities for this condition. They include topical medications, oral medications, which can have some serious side effects; and the newest modality which is laser therapy. 
 
At Facaros Foot & Ankle in Cherry Hill, NJ we use a laser, which focuses a concentrated beam of laser light through the nail to eradicate the fungus living under and in the nail. The procedure is performed right in our office, requires no anesthesia and ispainless.  Most patients require only three treatments and can once again enjoy wearing open toed shoes.

If you're tired of looking at those unsightly toenails, please contact our office to determine if you are a candidate for laser therapy.

WARTS (PLANTAR WARTS)

At Facaros Foot & Ankle we offer many wart removal treatment options. Foot Warts (Plantar Warts) are a common foot condition that we treat in our practice. If you have one or more growths on the bottom of your foot that may or may not be painful, chances are it's a plantar wart. 

Plantar Warts are caused by a virus. You may notice little black dots in the wart. People sometimes think these dots are splinters. They are actually the blood vessels that nourish the wart. You can get viral warts anywhere you walk barefoot, such as the local pool, karate studio, dance studio, locker room or even from a pedicure salon.

There are several treatments for plantar warts, the type of treatment received depends upon the patient's needs.  Plantar warts can spread easily. If you think you have one or more plantar warts, come in immediately to have them removed before they multiply

FOOT OR ANKLE SKIN CANCER

THINK IT'S SKIN CANCER?

Have you noticed a growth or a discoloration on  your foot or ankle? Has this growth changed shape or color recently?

Foot or ankle Melanoma (cancer (malignant tumor)) are often missed or diagnosed too late. We see these conditions every day in our practice and we are equipped to diagnose and treat these conditions quickly and effectively. 

Don't put yourself at risk by ignoring these signs. Schedule a consultation so that we can safeguard you against the cancers and complications that could develop.
