Toenail Fungus Infection
How does toenail fungus look? There are two distinct and clear symptoms. The first one is the discoloration of the nail. This can present all over the nail or in a section of your nail. The most common discoloration color is yellow. Also, white streaks over your nail can be symptoms of toenail fungus developing. In severe cases, the nail can become brown or even black.
Another common symptom is the thickening of the toenail. A toenail fungus infection can cause excess growth of the nail. As a result, the nail can become very thickened. This can lead to being unable to trim it. One way to keep trimming your nails would be to soak nails in warm water. As a result, this will soften your nails and help you trim them. It is important to maintain your toenails to prevent the infection from spreading.
Laser Treatment for a Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus treatments in Atlanta can vary. If you have caught nail fungus, it can be easily treated using the FDA-approved PinPointe laser, which typically only takes on 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.
