Here at the office of Dr. Robert L. Potempa, one of the most common reasons that patients visit us is for our foot infection treatment in Chicago. Foot infections can be painful, uncomfortable, and unsightly, and so it is important to get the treatment you need at the first signs of infection.
The most common type of foot infection that our Dr. Potempa sees in patients is the fungal infection. Fungal infections can start out as basically as a single white or yellow spot under the tip of your toenail. This is the first sign of infection that you should be on the lookout for, and it is appropriate to visit us for foot infection treatment in Chicago at this point in the infection’s development in order to keep it from spreading further. If the infection is not treated immediately, it will spread deeper and deeper into your nail, which usually causes serious discoloration of the nail itself. Along with discoloration, the infection usually causes the nail to thicken and crumble around its edges. This stage of the infection is not only aesthetically unpleasing, but it can also be quite painful and uncomfortable. If you are at this stage of infection, you should undoubtedly schedule an appointment with Dr. Potempa for foot infection treatment in Chicago so that we can give you the relief you need and promote healing. Aside from treating the pain and unsightliness, untreated fungal infections in the foot can also lead to serious blood infections, and so they should not be ignored or left to heal on their own—they need to be treated by a professional in order to eradicate the infection.
