Fingernail and toenail problems

What they are:

In-grown nails, nail fungus, warts, tumors or cysts around or underneath the nail beds, dark spots or streak, injury to the nail, or psoriasis of the nails can all be treated at River Ridge Dermatology. 

Fungal infections cause about half of all nail disorders, and nail problems make up for about 10 percent of dermatological conditions. Many older patients have problems with their nails. 

Your toenails and fingernails protect the tissues of your toes and fingers. Nail health can be an indicator of your general health, and your doctor can help determine the right treatment for your nail issues. 

Healthy nails are smooth and consistent in color, and white spots or vertical ridges are harmless. Some nail discoloration and changes in your nail growth rate can be signs of lung, heart, kidney, or liver disease, or diabetes or anemia. 

Never attempt to treat an ingrown toenail yourself, especially if it is infected.
