Nail fungus common cures can include topical solutions, oral medications, and laser treatments. Although, it does not mean that they are effective and efficient. Some of these cures take a very long time and some don’t even show results after months of treatment. The best way to know what will work for you is to consult with a nail doctor. They can give you the necessary information. They will also determine if the treatment will work as well.

Common Cures

Some treatment options include topical solutions and oral medication. Topical solutions have a very low success rate. This is because the solution does not penetrate all the way under the nail bed. All the fungus has to die to be cured. Also, it can take months to see any results. Oral medication has a better success rate. Although, they can cause liver toxicity. You would need constant blood tests while taking the medication. This is why our doctors do not recommend oral medication. It can be a tedious and nerve-racking treatment.

When do I see results?

People who suffer from nail fungus want the same thing; clear, healthy-looking nails right away. Unfortunately, nail fungus is a very infectious disease and changes the way our nails look in shape, color, and overall appearance. With this in mind, we need to understand that the shape, color, and appearance of the nail cannot change with the press, zap, or application of any sort of treatment. The healthier nail needs to grow in as the old nail grows out and gets cut/removed progressively.

Nail fungus common cures can include topical solutions, oral medications, and laser treatments. On average, our nails take six to nine months to fully grow out, however, the speed of nail growth does vary from person to person. After treating your nails, you should understand that you need to wait for results to show, as mentioned above results are not apparent instantly or overnight, you must wait.
