Hi, I'm Dr. Wachtel and I'm going to talk about thickened, ugly nails. Many patients come in our practice telling me that their nails are thick, white, yellow, brown, have an odor, they hurt, and other issues because they're so thick, they get ingrown toenails from them. What is this condition The condition is normally called onychomycosis, or fungal nails. Fungal nails become very thick, white, yellow, and brown, and brittle they break, cause ingrown toenails, and they hurt. For some patients they don't hurt, and unfortunately they become very unsightly. It is very common to start out with one nail.
And have almost all of your nails affected by this terrible fungal infection. The first thing that we typically do, if we think that there is a fungal infection, is we might consider biopsying the nail and sending it to a certain kind of lab that can diagnose fungal infections in the nail. At that point, we have to make the decision as to how we're going to go about treating it. One way is an oral antifungal, but there are risks and concerns with the oral medications. There are other ways a topical, and we will send patients home and.
Have them thin their nails out very well, so that when they apply the medicine, it works properly. Lastly, there is exciting laser treatments now available in our practice. Laser is a beam of light that heats tissue at a certain wavelength and thereby kills the fungal nail. There are other treatments that we recommend to take home, topicals to apply to the nail, topicals to the skin, if there is fungus in the skin, and even a shoe tree that will kill fungus in the actual shoe. Fungus is complex, it is not contagious from one human to another human,.
How To Do a Subterranean Termite Treatment
Hey I'm Chris the Bug Guy from Domyownpestcontrol, and today we are going to show you how to get rid of termites, specifically how to get rid of subterranean termites. Termite treatment chemicals are mainly used to treat subterranean termites which come from underground. For that reason, to treat subterranean termites, we have to dig a termite around the house and place the treatment in the ground. The goal is to put a liquid barrier around your entire home, and DIY, or do it yourself, termite treatment products are made to last a long.
Time in the soil. So anywhere from 5 to over 10 years wow that's a long time. The best termite products we have these days are called nonrepellent products. This means the termites do not realize the barrier is in the soil. They walk through the product freely picking it up on their bodies and carrying it back down underground and passing it around to the rest of the colony. It moves like a plague, killing the queen and the entire colony over a period of time. The cost of a termite treatment from a professional company can range from.
Anywhere on average from $800$1500. Most of the cost is in the labor to perform the treatment, but at Domyownpestcontrol if you are willing to do the labor yourself you can treat your home just as effectively as the professionals for a few hundred dollars or less. Now that is a lot of money back in your pocket. Now let's go outside and show you how to apply the product in the trench around your home. Step 1 is digging the trench. The trench against your house should be 6 wide and 6 deep. You can use a shovel or.
A pick axe, and the trench will be directly against the foundation. Once you have dug the trench, it is 4 gallons per 10 feet, 10 lineal feet, along the house. So you are going to mix in the termiticide, make a line on the bucket if you need to for 4 gallons, and once it's mixed we're going to evenly distribute it over the trench. So we have a 10' section over here. You are going to evenly distribute those 4 gallons over the 10', and then move on to the next section. By the time you get back around this should have dissipated into.
The soil. Now once you have finished trenching and filling the trench with the termiticide, and it's had time to dissipate into the soil you need to put the back fill back into the trench. Now the dirt right now is untreated. This is the dirt we took out of the trench, but you want to make sure that you treat it before you put it back in because you don't want a layer of untreated soil on top of the treated soil. If termites happen to go right near the surface, they are going to skip the termiticide you placed in the trench. So this.
Is a lot easier with two people. You want to mix some termiticide in a 1 gallon pump sprayer, and then you want to have a shovel or a rake to push the dirt back in the trench. The person with the sprayer is going to go ahead and start just wetting the dirt down, not so much that it is muddy, but just start wetting the dirt down, and as you are pushing it back in with the shovel or rake, the other person is going to wet it down. Just move.

Bunion Surgery Patient Testimonial
It's our understanding that bunions are hereditary they do run in families and unhappily, my mother had severe bunions and horribly deformed feet. She lived to be into her nineties and they were quite a problem for her. About ten years ago my wife developed some severe problems with her bunions, and I threatened her I told her she would wind up like my mom if she didn't get something done. So she came into the foot and ankle center here and had the surgery very successfully and has been very happy with the result.
Of course, both my daughter, Christine, and I have had symptoms and growing problems with our feet, so the challenge arose to have Christine get her feet done first, so that when I had mine done, she could drive me to work and take me home. On the first route, I brought her over, and her mom brought her over and we've done this. I've got some medical problems of my own having to do with heart issues. I take Cumadin and I was concerned about some swelling in the ankles or bruising or bleeding,.
And I was very delighted to find that the procedure was very mild in terms of the impact and the outcome on my feet. I was back at work three days later. I do have a desk job, so I wasn't on my feet, but I've been very functional since the first week of the surgery. I'm able to walk around now two weeks into the process without any significant issues. Certainly I limp, but that's to be expected. Chris, of course, is coming to the end of the process on her second foot, and now she can say something.
About her experience. Well, just like my dad, I've experienced very little pain, very little swelling or any of that following my surgery. Things have gone very well, in fact, this past weekend, actually coming to the end of my 5th week, I went to a convention and was able to walk the exhibit hall floor for a couple of hours with really no trouble at all, whereas before, when I went to conventions, went to Disney Land, or things like that, after a while, my bunions would start hurting and just walking.
Would be a bit painful. Now, it's great. My feet look beautiful, and I'm very, very happy! Great results! That's where we are in the process and in several weeks I'll probably have the second foot done and continue through this. The outcome for us has been very good up tothis point, and certainly I can speak for my wife she's had 10 years of painfree walking and activity on feet that were done here a number of years ago. If that's what we can look forward to, then we're delighted with.
