Dermatologist & Toe (Nail) Fungus
I just returned from the Dermatologist’s office.
1. If it were psoriasis there would likely be more than one nail involved. In addition there would likely be psoriasis evident elsewhere on the skin.
2. Dr. took a nail sample and a ‘fungus’ sample from under the nail to be sent to pathology.
3. Dr. advised “to prevent spread of fungus to other toes do this: 1/2 warm water 1/2 white vinegar. Soak the foot for 15 minutes three times per week.”
4. Rx for a cnl8nail kit (cicloiprox topical solution, 8%)
hmmm, I just visited there and found this: “A completely clear nail may not be achieved with use of this medication. In clinical studies less than 12% of patients were able to achieve either a completely clear or almost clear toenail.”
I see why the family Dr said ‘get used to it. Read the part about professional removal of the unattached nail monthly for six months….
