Nail Disorders

The health of your nails provides clues about your general health. When you notice a change in your fingernails or toenails – such as discoloration, thickening, bleeding, or swelling of the skin around the nails – it may indicate a bigger health problem, such as infection or disease. Other changes, such as white spots and vertical ridges, are harmless.

At ColumbiaDoctors, our dermatologists have expertise with all types of nail conditions. They are trained to read the clues your nails provide and will help you get the diagnosis and treatment you need. We provide treatment for:

  • Bacterial and fungal infections
  • Ingrown nails
  • Warts

When your nail change indicates a larger issue – such as diabetes, anemia, heart and lung conditions, kidney disease, and liver disease – ColumbiaDoctors provides seamless, multidisciplinary care so that you can get the treatment you need, all in one place.
