My Toenail Hurts

Oh my aching toenails! Is this you? Are your toenail painful all the time? Or are they just painful in your shoes? Maybe just in certain types of shoes? Painful toenails can be caused by a myriad of different reasons, but here are the top 5.

1. Ingrown toenails
2. Infected toenails
3. Thick toenails from chronic trauma (onychochauxis)
4. Blood underneath your toenail (subungual hematoma)
5. Or the most common: Fungal infection (onychomycosis)

If your toenails are painful, take a close look. Are they red? Thick? Pinching your skin? Do they have fluid under them or drainig from a corner? Are they yellow, thickened and chalky? If you have any changes to your toenail, you need a podiatrist to sort it out.

Normal looking toenails, but still painful? It is usually the shoes! Too tight and usually too narrow!

Painful toanails can give you a really bad day! Call us and let us take a look!

Prevent this painful toenails by maintaining good foot hygiene. Make sure that your feet are thoroughly dry before putting on your shoes, and never borrow other people's socks or shoes. Regularly change your socks and wash them as often.

Welcome to the Business Team at Foot and Ankle Associates of North Texas. Our appointment schedulers and billing department work in tandem to assist you and your family during your FAANT experience.
Our scheduling team will complete a short appointment questionnaire that will allow us the opportunity to contact your plan prior to your visit. We will find out what type of Podiatry benefits you should expect, including your coverage limits, which we will then review with you before you are seen.
If you are a new patient, we ask that you complete our online patient forms. We also update paperwork for established patients at least once a year or upon any changes. Having the most accurate information on you and your family will help us better treat your medical conditions, and it will also allow us to process your insurance claims more efficiently.
Thank you for helping us to be more prepared for your visit. Please download our online patient forms and fax them to our confidential fax at least 48 hours prior to your visit at 817-886-3612. We ask that you arrive 20 minutes prior to your visit with your insurance and identification cards; we will scan each card to validate your electronic health record. Please allow for ample time to check in with our team in order to help prevent your appointment being delayed or even rescheduled.
