Toenail Fungus Prevention
There are many ways to prevent toenail fungus. First, you should never share nail clippers. It can easily spread to all your nails. Also, you can infect others around you. Furthermore, always clean and disinfect your nail clippers after every use.
Another way to avoid getting toenail fungus is to wear shoes in public places. This includes public swimming pools, hot tubs, hot springs, gyms, saunas, and locker rooms. People can easily get infected by walking barefoot in these kinds of places.
Laser Treatment for a Toenail Fungus in Los Angeles
Toenail fungus treatments in Los Angeles can vary. If you have caught nail fungus, it can be easily treated using the FDA-approved PinPointe laser, which typically only takes one treatment. Other treatments like topical solutions and oral medication are not as effective. Topical solutions have a very low cure rate. This is because the solution does not penetrate all the way through the nail bed. This is because it can lead to liver toxicity. You would need to have consistent blood tests throughout the course of taking the medication.

As a result, you can go about your daily activities right after the treatment. Also, there’s no pain.
