Call us today if you are dealing with fungal toenails. Don’t suffer another day with the embarrassment of discolored, thick, or brittle nails.
The area between the toes is generally dark, warm, and moist. This type of environment, unfortunately, makes it a great place for the fungus to thrive. When left untreated, the fungal infection will spread. This is why it’s so important to get professional help early on and look into the best treatment options.
Fungal infections happen when fungus gets through a small crack in the toenails or cuts in your skin. Some common signs that you are infected by fungus include thickened, oddly shaped, or discolored toenails. In other cases, separation of the nail and nail bed may happen as well. Fungal infections can infect anyone but are most common among the elderly. Also common in people with diabetes, athlete’s foot, and smokers. The risk of having toenail fungus also increases if you have a weaker immune system.
Easy tips to prevent Toenail Fungus
If you’re looking to avoid getting toenail fungus follow the following steps:
- Wash your feet daily with soap and water.
- After washing your feet make sure to dry them thoroughly.
- Cut your toenails straight across and with clean nail clippers.
- Wear shoes in areas where fungus can grow. (For example swimming pools, spas, or locker rooms.)
Best way to treat Toenail Fungus
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.
Our Nail Fungus Specialist in San Diego recommends this treatment for toenail fungus. The PinPointe Laser treatment has the highest cure rate in the market. It has no side effects and no recovery period. As a result, you can go about your daily activities right after the treatment. Also, there’s no pain.
