In order to get rid of all the fungus on your toenails, you must treat the infection aggressively. This is because you can easily get reinfected after any treatment you take.  It is important to speak with a nail doctor. They will recommend the best treatment option.

How do I know I have a toenail fungus?

A common symptom of toenail fungus is discoloration of the nail. Yellowing of the nails is the most common among people who have it. Some people also see white streaks. In severe cases, people might see their nails become brown or black. Another common symptom is the thickening of the nail. This makes your nail look very thick. As a result, it makes it very difficult to cut and maintain your nails.

Getting Infected

People get infected when walking barefoot in public areas. This includes public pools, locker rooms, and gyms. Always wear shoes when walking in public areas. Also, when sharing the same shoes. Another common way is by sharing nail clippers. It is important to always clean and sanitizes your nail clippers after using them. This will prevent others from getting infected and from passing the infection to your other nails.

Laser Treatment for a Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus treatments in Scottsdale 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.
