How a Toenail Fungus Can Affect Your Sex Life

Has this ever happened to you? Your toenails become discolored, thick and crumbly causing you an embarrassment to take your shoes and socks off. Don't want to wear sandals because your toes will show. You avoid going to the beach or doing any activity which exposes your toes! Your life becomes a prisoner to your toenails.

This may sound far fetched, but it is not. People of all ages can experience this problem. I even had a patient in his 90's who stated since developing a fungus in his toenails, his sex life was non existent. Onychomycosis is the medical term for fungus toenails. He became depressed and came into my office with his granddaughter for help. He wanted treatment. She said he was not smiling or happy anymore because of his toenails and how they were affecting his life.

Well, after treating the mycotic toenails and making them look normal again, his attitude improved, he was smiling again, and yes his sex life was back to normal for him.

Not all discolored toenails are fungal toenails. There are other conditions which can cause the nails to mimic a fungus toenail, so diagnosis is very important. Only then can proper treatment be instituted. Don't let a problem such as mycotic toenails affect your self esteem and sex life. Come in for treatment and get back to your normal life.
