Should You Get a Pedicure If You Have a Toenail Fungal Infection?

Posted by Dr. Jeffrey L. Adler

If you are living with a toenail fungal infection then you probably want to do everything in your power to hide it. Your ugly, discolored, jagged, just plain embarrassing toenails really aren’t a good look for you. Sandal season is just around the corner and it’s time to pamper yourself with a pedicure to get your toes ready for the world to see. But you ask yourself, can I even get a pedicure if I have toenail fungus? The answer is that it's probably better not to, and we’ll explain why, as well as some treatment options to consider such as toenail fungus laser treatment.

Do you know how you got toenail fungus in the first place?

There are many different causes of toenail fungus. Most likely, you contracted the fungus from walking barefoot in a public place, like the locker room at the gym or a public swimming pool. Participating in sports or activities that cause wear and tear on your feet could also lead to toenail fungus because they can cause damage to the nail and rupture the nail plate. This gives microscopic spores the opportunity to enter your toenail and start the infection that leads to toenail fungus.

You may also have gotten your toenail fungus from unsterilized equipment used at your favorite nail salon. If someone with toenail fungus got a pedicure before you, and the tools weren’t properly cleaned, then you could have easily contracted toenail fungus.

Your phone buzzes. You just got a text from your friend to meet you at the pool to hear all about the first date. Your heart sinks. There is no way you will hit the pool, or anywhere else where being shoeless is necessary. Letting your feet out to play while they are plagued by embarrassing toenail fungus is not an option.

Toenail fungus can make the nails on your feet thick, yellow, distorted, hard and ragged. Out of all the ways to treat this condition, toenail fungus laser treatment may be the best option.
