Yes, as a practicing podiatrist, Dr. Hinduja has the authority to prescribe medications for nail fungus. Fungal infections of the toenails can be particularly stubborn and difficult to treat, often requiring oral or topical antifungal medications to effectively eliminate the infection.
It's important to note that not all cases of nail fungus will require medication, and treatment options should be tailored to each individual patient based on the severity of their condition and any underlying health conditions that may be contributing to the infection. Before prescribing any medication, Dr. Hinduja will perform a thorough evaluation to diagnose and evaluate the underlying cause of the nail fungus.
To prevent certain foot skin conditions, such as fungus and athlete’s foot, practice good hygiene by washing your feet regularly, keeping them dry, and avoiding walking barefoot in public areas. Wear shoes that fit properly and allow your feet to breathe, and avoid sharing footwear or towels with others.
