What does nail fungus look like?
Nail fungus is caused by an overgrowth of fungi underneath the nail bed, which can result in:
- scaling or streaks in the nails
- thickened nails
What’s the best treatment?
At Your Next Step, a podiatry practice serving the greater Philadelphia area, there is an effective and fast laser treatment available for patients with fungal infections.

You can see immediate results as new nail grows out, and soon you can achieve healthy clear nails. The procedure is painless, requires no anesthesia, takes only 20 minutes, and patients can immediately put socks and footwear on to return to daily activities.
You will have a team of board-certified podiatrists Dr. Eric Ricefield, Dr. Mark Yagodich and Dr. Aliza V.
