How to Prevent Damage from Toenail Polish

It is common for women in Houston to wear toenail polish. Likewise, it is also common to experience damage from toenail polish. Very often, when polish is removed, you may notice a white streaking of the nail. Many people mistake this streaking for toenail fungus, which it is usually not.

Dr. Andrew Schneider offers three suggestions to prevent damage from nail polish:

  1. Use the wintertime to take a break from wearing toenail polish. This will allow your toenails to recover when it is not "sandal season."
  2. Use a "healthy" nail polish, such as Dr.'s Remedy, which does not have the damaging chemicals that most polishes have
  3. Use a "healthy" nail polish remover, which does not contain acetone.

If you are concerned that you have damage to your toenails from nail polish, or are concerned that you may have a fungus infection of your toenails, contact our office for an immediate appointment.
