Foot Care Skills Workshop: Fungal Nail Treatment

In this comprehensive workshop, you’ll learn the latest techniques for treating fungal nail infections. Fungal infections, known as onychomycosis, are one of the most common conditions you’ll see as a foot care nurse.

Diagnosing Fungal Nails

The first step is properly identifying a fungal infection. Fungal nails often become thick, yellow, and brittle. The nail may crumble or separate from the nail bed. Fungal infections can lead to pain and difficulty walking for your patients, so accurate diagnosis and treatment are critical.

Treatment Options

Once you’ve diagnosed a fungal infection, you have several treatment approaches to consider:

  • Oral antifungal drugs: Powerful drugs like terbinafine are often effective but can cause side effects like nausea or diarrhea in some patients. Close monitoring is required.
  • Nail removal: In severe cases, removing part or all of the nail may be necessary before applying topical treatments. This allows the medication to fully penetrate the nail bed.
  • Laser therapy: Laser treatments use targeted light pulses to kill the fungus. Multiple treatments are typically required but it avoids the risks of oral drugs. Lasers do require a significant upfront investment in equipment.
  • Topical medications: Antifungal creams, oils, and nail polishes/lacquers are popular options. They pose little risk of side effects but may take up to 12 months of use to fully clear an infection. Patient compliance is key.
  • Natural remedies: Some patients prefer to try natural approaches first using ingredients like tea tree oil, coconut oil, and menthol. Evidence is limited but these are considered safe to experiment with, as long as prescription options are also discussed.

Patient Education

Educating your patients is one of the most important parts of effective treatment. Be sure to discuss:

  • The importance of continuing the full course of treatment as prescribed to avoid recurrence.
  • Basic nail hygiene like keeping nails trimmed, filing down thickened areas, and using a nail brush.
  • The need to avoid nail polish or artificial nails during treatment.
  • The possibility that the infection could return, requiring additional rounds of treatment.
  • How certain medical conditions like diabetes or psoriasis can increase the risk of fungal infections. Lifestyle changes may help reduce recurrence.
    With the latest knowledge and skills, you can confidently diagnose and treat fungal nail infections. Your patients will appreciate your expertise in helping them achieve clear, healthy nails again.

Foot Care Skills Workshop: Ingrown Nail Care

Ingrown nails happen when the nail grows into the soft tissue of the toe.They can become painful if left untreated. As a foot care nurse, knowing how to properly treat ingrown nails is an important skill to have.

Diagnose and Assess the Ingrown Nail

The first step is to examine the toe to determine the severity of the ingrown nail. Look for signs of infection like swelling, redness, or pus. Ask the patient about their symptoms and pain level. You’ll need to assess how much of the nail is ingrown and if any part has become embedded in the toe. Take notes and pictures to properly document the patient’s condition.

Numbing the Toe

To perform any ingrown nail treatment, you’ll need to numb the toe to prevent pain. Apply a numbing agent like lidocaine to the base of the toe and wait for it to take effect. Check that the toe is fully numb by gently pinching the area around the nail. The patient should not feel any pain.

Removing the Ingrown Portion of Nail

Once numb, you can remove the ingrown section of nail. Use sterilized nail clippers or nail nippers to cut the nail along the edge of the ingrowth. File the nail to smooth the edge. Remove any detached nail fragments. Irrigate the area with saline to prevent infection. Apply an antibiotic ointment and cover the toe with a bandage.

Follow-Up Care

Educate your patient about proper aftercare like keeping the toe elevated, changing bandages daily, and watching for signs of infection. They should avoid activities that could further irritate the toe during the healing process. Schedule a follow-up appointment within a week to monitor healing and make sure the ingrown nail does not return. You may need to remove part of the nail matrix to prevent ingrowth if it’s a recurrent problem.

With the right techniques and tools, you can properly treat ingrown nails and provide relief to your patients. These skills, combined with your experience, will make you an invaluable resource to help people in your community maintain mobility and foot health.
