With summer just around the corner, you may have started pampering your feet to get them sandal-ready. But no amount of moisturizing and exfoliation can help a potentially embarrassing problem: yellow toenails.
In most cases, yellow toenails are the result of a fungal infection. It’s contagious, often highly resistant to treatment, and it attacks the nail bed and surrounding tissue.
For moderate or severe cases-with the nail being thick, crumbly, lifting and nearly all yellow-an oral antibiotic like Lamisil, prescribed by a dermatologist or podiatrist, is necessary to clear up the infection.
