Continued Q&A with Tracey Vlahovic, DPM


How can you minimize permanent nail damage when doing a biopsy through the nail matrix?

It is rare to have that nail damage, but it is best to consent for it just in case.  Dystrophy is always a possibility when disturbing the nail matrix, but that is where you have to take the biopsy from. 


Biopsy of nail matrix, damages nail permanently??

It has potential to, but it is rare.  It has to be made known and consented for, just in case


How do you treat nail psoraisis?

In the pdf of the lecture, you will find a topical way of treating it.  


If you are telling patient to use multiple topicals, is there an order for applying, is applying one after the other appropriate, etc??

With psoriasis, the steroid, vitamin d analog, and moisturizer can be applied in succession.  moisturizer generally last.  


If someone sees me after being put on an oral or topical antifungal from another provider, I’m reluctant to culture for fear of false negative. What are your thoughts?

The culture will be negative generally after 3 months of being on an antifungal.  


What of NEG for fungus( PAS/PCR even)or yeast/mold nail culture, but positive for bacteria. How know bacteria not pathogenic?

Bacteria do not have the capability to break down keratin.  they aren't a cause for onychomycosis.  They are part of the natural flora and often the biofilm that is created under the nail.  


What are the top three topical medications that you prescribe for tinea?

That is dependent on the patient's insurance.  I don't have a top three since I go by formulary.  


For atopic eczema what are your thoughts on using Elidel?

Elidel is a solid second or third line topical for non-steroidal for eczema.
