How do you feel about your feet? Are they long and slim? Short and wide? Do you have hairy toes or rough heels? Are your toenails painted? Long? Short? Strong? Do you get the occasional charlie horse? Plantars wart? Toenail fungus?
Our opinions about feet can be funny things. Just like every other part of our bodies, they vary from person to person in size and shape, and some of us think our feet are beautiful, while others of us think our feet just look a little bit weird. But our feet are so important to us. We put them through SO MUCH. No wonder they get achy and sore, and need special attention every now and then.
Are you a person who enjoys the annual flip-flop weather pedicure every Spring? Give those feet a bit of a face lift, so to speak? Or are you someone who hides your toes as often as you possibly can? Do you find your toenails to be unsightly, maybe even painful?
Do you suffer from toenail fungus?
You would not be alone. Toenail fungus is rather common. Here’s a cruel irony: toenail fungus is unsightly, right? So instead of wearing those flip flops around town during the summer, you wear close-toed shoes. And it’s 85 degrees outside. And your feet sweat. And they’re not breathing in those close-toed shoes. This is exactly what causes toenail fungus!
It seems like everyone has an opinion about how to treat toenail fungus, but do all of these at-home remedies actually work? Essential oils will help your feet smell like lavender, whether or not they heal your toes. Soaking your feet in mouthwash may not kill toenail fungus, but it will definitely give you blue feet for awhile. Talk about unsightly.
Even though toenail fungus is a relatively common ailment, its treatment can be challenging. When you’re finished experimenting with what you can find in your cabinets at home, please come see us. We use a laser treatment to take care of this unsightly and stubborn issue, to give you your feet back. So you can go get those pedicures. So you can sport those flip flops on the beach and those open-toed heels at parties.
Your feet do a lot for you. They walk, run, swim, dance, tip toe you through every part of your busy life. When they need a little extra care, take care of them the best way you can, so they can go back to carrying you through every obstacle you encounter.
