Treatments for Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus is a fungal infection of the foot that negatively impacts the texture of the nail. Importantly, there are a variety of different kinds of treatments that are available to treat a case of toenail fungus. After visiting a trusted medical professional such as a podiatrist, a patient might be informed that they can benefit from a cream, solution, medicated nail polish, or some other kind of treatment. The severity of the toenail fungus might affect the treatment that is recommended. Creams meant to address a toenail fungus are of particular significance because some can be used to treat a fungus all over the body. However, some creams of this kind are only meant to treat relatively mild infections. It is important to fully understand the specific pros and cons of whatever fungal cream you select. Schedule an appointment with a podiatrist today who can help you select the best treatment for your toenail fungus.

Toenail Fungus Treatment

Toenail fungus is a condition that affects many people and can be especially hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several methods to go about treating and avoiding it.

Antifungals & Deterrence

Oral antifungal medicine has been shown to be effective in many cases. It is important to consult with a podiatrist to determine the proper regiment for you, or potentially explore other options.

Applying foot powder on the feet and shoes helps keep the feet free of moisture and sweat.

Sandals or open toed shoes – Wearing these will allow air movement and help keep feet dry. They also expose your feet to light, which fungus cannot tolerate. Socks with moisture wicking material also help as well.
