Dermatology – Nail Disorders
Dermatologists treat conditions that affect the fingernails and toenails. Nail disorders account for approximately 10 percent of all skin conditions. These disorders include ingrown nails, fungal infections, bacterial infections, warts, and tumors. There are also many other nail conditions that may be associated with more widespread skin disorders such as psoriasis and lichen planus, and other systemic illnesses such as liver and kidney disease, heart and lung conditions, diabetes, and anemia.
Your dermatologist can evaluate your nail disorder and is also trained in nail surgery.
