What are fungal nails?
A fungal nail infection can occur in fingernails or toenails. In the toenail it usually occurs as a result of having Athletes foot that has been left untreated. Athletes foot is a fungal infection that resides on the sole of the foot and between the toes, if not managed it can eventually spread to the nails. The nails can become discoloured, thickened, have a strong odour and become uncomfortable. The shape and thickness of the nail can change making them difficult to trim and causing discomfort when placing pressure on them.

We are very pleased to welcome our new podiatrist Seán Heath. Sean has experience in the NHS and private practice covering all aspects of podiatry including routine treatment, biomechanical assessments and orthotic therapy, SWIFT microwave therapy and nail surgery. He is registered with the Health Care Professions Council and a member of the College of Podiatry (formally known as the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists).
Central Podiatry Daventry can offer a new reliable test to accurately diagnose fungal nail infection. In around half of cases where nails are unsightly or thickened, fungal infection is not responsible. In some cases this can lead to inappropriate and unecessary fungal nail treatment.
To carry out the test a small nail sample is required, the procedure is painless and takes only 5 minutes to carry out while you wait.
