NEW YORK, Apr 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- "Nail fungus may affect anyone at any time. It makes no difference how impeccable your hygiene is". This is the claim of the a 25-year veteran of podiatry as well as pioneer of various skin treatments, Dr. Alexander Fish. Dr. Fish shares, "The results of our clinic's intensive two year study reveal a startling truth: Every person is susceptible to acquiring skin and nail fungus. The presence of fungus throughout our daily environment is more prevalent than we once thought."
According to the study, there are various comfortable homes for fungus spores. Inside of the shoes is the most obvious one. Spores thrive and may attach themselves as parasites to a human host at any given time. Public areas that are damp, dark, and warm such as saunas, gyms and nail salons are common breeding grounds for a wide array of fungus infections.
"Fungal infections and nail fungus in particular are not only itchy and irritating, but they are also quite embarrassing," adds Dr. Fish, a podiatrist of Manhattan Clinic Walk and Smile. "Because of the prevalence of nail fungus and fungal spores that are essentially everywhere it is only a matter of time before it finds a human host, causing an infection," Dr. Fish elaborates.
Fortunately, Walk and Smile conducts routine tests and provides patients with practical tips to minimize the risk of infection. Routine checkups, special feet cleaning therapies, as well as the use of special antifungal products, if an overgrowth is detected are included in the service. Several treatments have been formulated by Dr. Fish himself. These are based on his decades-long experience in treating fungus infections.
"One of the quickest ways of treating fungus infections and nail fungus in particular, is utilizing unique treatments that were developed in my lab - Walk and Smile. These have years of scientific validity," is the claim of Dr. Fish. Dr. Fish had been selected for the 2011 Best of Manhattan Award in the Podiatry Physicians category by the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA). "Nail fungus can be successfully treated by the right professionals," adds Dr. Fish.
