LASER FOR TOENAIL FUNGUS REMOVAL
Toenail fungus is an infection of the nail that enters through cracks in your nails or cuts in the skin around the nail. This can cause discoloration and thickening of the nail. The infection can cause the nail to separate from the nail bed. Left untreated, it can spread to other nails as well as the skin surrounding the nails.
Treatment of toenail fungus depends on the type and severity of the infection and often includes:
- Laser therapy for fungal toenails
- Applying a topical cream or lacquer directly to the nail
- Taking an antifungal oral medication
- Removing the damaged area of nail or skin.
- In severe cases, the nail may need to be surgically removed
The best ways to keep toenails from becoming infected include keeping the feet clean and dry, changing your socks regularly, wearing shoes with plenty of ventilation, and wearing shower shoes in public places like locker rooms, swimming pools, and showers.
