Prevention and treatment of toenail fungus

Prevention and treatment of toenail fungus

Fungal infection of toenails is a very difficult problem.

It requires long-term treatment with strong drugs. They can cause side effects. And even given they are used adequately fungal infection can recur.

Nail fungus occurs more often in people who wear very thick, non-breathable shoes if their feet sweat heavily and are exposed to repeated injuries. Fungal infections of the skin also pose a risk of nail infection. It is important to keep your feet clean during the day, wear comfortable shoes, ventilate your feet and dry your feet after washing. Nail fungus treatment creams are often ineffective, but they have fewer side effects than oral medications. In recent years laser treatment of nail fungus gives good results. In our clinic, we use NdYag laser treatment that is most effective for this purpose.
