Toenail pitting is a common condition characterized by small depressions or indentations on the surface of the toenail. It can be caused by several factors, including fungal infections, psoriasis, eczema, or injury to the nail bed.
Toenail pitting cure refers to the treatment methods or approaches used to address this condition and improve the appearance and health of the affected toenail. The specific cure may vary depending on the underlying cause.
For fungal infections, antifungal medications (topical or oral) or toenail fungus removal treatments may be prescribed. In cases of psoriasis or eczema, corticosteroid creams or ointments may be recommended to reduce inflammation. If the pitting is a result of an injury, proper wound care and protection may be necessary.
It is important to consult with a healthcare professional or a dermatologist who can provide an accurate diagnosis and recommend the most suitable treatment option for toenail pitting.« Back to Glossary Index
