Dermatologists are not only experts on the skin, but also of the hair and nails. Nail diseases include fungal and bacterial infections and abnormal texture or color. Fungal infections can appear as yellowing and thickening of the nail. If left untreated, the infection can spread.
Treatment for nail disease can be done on-site. With most nail conditions, the sooner you treat the better. Your facility’s dermatology specialist will evaluate the affected areas and notify your resident(s) and your nursing staff of the best treatment methods for the specific case.
