COMMON PROBLEMS

TOENAIL FUNGUS

Onychomycosis, or toenail fungus, is a contagious fungal infection. It often causes thickening of the nails, along with a yellow, white or brown discoloration. An extremely affected nail may also become frail and detach. Sometimes, toenail fungus can produce an unpleasant odour. Although numerous risk factors and causes have been established, toenail fungus is rarely harmful to your health. It is generally treated for its unaesthetic or painful attributes.

THE SOLUTIONS

WHAT CAN I
DO ABOUT IT?

There are numerous treatments. Topical antifungal medications, fungus-attacking agents, include special nail polishes, solutions or creams applied to the nails over a prolonged period of time. Oral antifungal medications are another option. However, while generally more effective than the first group of treatments, oral medications do come with a host of side effects. Finally, laser therapy for onychomycosis can be considered. It’s highly effective, relatively quick and poses no health hazards to patients.
