<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Fungus infection – also called onychomycosis – under the toenail causes the toenail to darken and emit an offensive odor</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__> <em><strong>Toenail fungus is often ignored because the infection can be present for years without causing any pain. The disease is characterized by a progressive change in a toenail’s quality and color, which is often ugly and embarrassing.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Each incidence has its own treatment and there are numerous causes of the growth of the fungus. Most often, it is possible to completely avoid the occurrence of these fungi with proper hygiene, there are some issues that raise the possibility of developing these types of infections, such as:</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>At the first sign of darkening or distortion of your toenails, it’s advisable to seek the advice of your doctor.   Early attention makes all the difference in your continued good health. There are many treatment options.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Early detection of a fungus by use of nail culture, the discovery and elimination of the source of the infection and the creation of plan of action to treat it are all important actions to quickly eradicate the fungus and restore your health. The treatment may require the use of medications, either topical or oral and the removal of the dead and diseased toenail .</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The FDA has more recently approved very effective oral antifungal treatments. They have also been proven to shorten the treatment time to roughly 3 months. Depending on the severity of the fungal infection, your doctor my recommend a topical solution which has also been proven an effective treatment option area.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Permanent removal of a chronically painful nail that has not responded to any other treatment allows the fungal infection to be cured and prevents the return of a deformed nail.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Depending on the severity of the infection, it may be necessary to perform surgery.   The toenail is removed which allows the doctor to apply the topical treatment directly to the infected</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Non prescription medications typically do not produce the desired result. Your doctor will more likely prescribe the more effective oral medication.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>There is also the option to use a “nail polish” type treatment like antifungal nail lacquer</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Another form of treatment is the Toenail fungus laser treatment and could be your solution. The treatment is available at our clinics.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>The treatment includes targeting a laser beam on the affected nails. The laser beam does not damage the nail or underlying nail bed. The results aren’t instantaneous, the new nail grows normally only after the fungus is destroyed. Unlike some medications the laser treatment for nail fungus does not have undesirable side effects.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>One of the more effective treatments for nail fungus is the use of the laser. This laser kills the fungus under the nail without causing any pain, damage or discomfort to the area. Your skin will feel slightly warm. Some patients report feeling a slight “pinprick”. In less than 20 minutes, your nail fungus could be a thing of the past.</p>

<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a fungus infection underneath the surface of the nail. When the tiny fungi organisms take hold, the toenail becomes darker in color and emits an offensive odor.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Toenail fungus is often ignored because the infection can be present for years without causing any pain. The disease is characterized by a progressive change in a toenail’s quality and color, which is often ugly and embarrassing.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>There are many different causes of fungal nail infections, and each cause has its own specific treatment. It is usually possible to completely avoid the occurrence of these fungi with proper hygiene. However, certain risk factors increase the likelihood of developing this condition.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>You are more likely to develop a fungal nail infection if you:</strong></em></p>

<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>
<li>have diabetes</li>
<li>have a disease that affects the blood vessels</li>
<li>are an older woman</li>
<li>wear artificial nails</li>
<li>swim in a public swimming pool</li>
<li>have a nail injury</li>
<li>have moist fingers or toes for an extended period of time</li>
<li>have a weakened immune system</li>
<li>wear closed shoes, such as tennis shoes or boots</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>You should visit a podiatrist when you first notice any discoloration, thickening, or deformity of your toenails. The earlier you seek professional treatment, the greater your chance at getting your nails to return to normal.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Treatments may vary, depending on the nature and severity of the infection. Our podiatrist can detect a fungal infection early, culture the nail, determine the cause, and form a suitable treatment plan. This may include prescribing topical or oral medication, and may also require debridement (removal of diseased nail matter and debris) of an infected nail.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Newer oral antifungals, recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, have proven to be very effective. They offer a shorter treatment time, approximately three months. Your podiatrist may also prescribe a topical solution, which can be an effective treatment modality for fungal nails.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><b>In some cases, surgical treatment may be required. Temporary removal of the infected nail can be performed to permit direct application of a topical anti-fungal. Permanent removal of a chronically painful nail that has not responded to any other treatment allows the fungal infection to be cured, and prevents the return of a deformed nail.</b></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Usually, over-the-counter products are not recommended for treating nail infections because they do not provide reliable results. Instead, our doctor is more likely to prescribe an oral antifungal medication.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Other antifungal treatment options include using antifungal nail lacquer or topical solutions. These treatments are brushed onto the nail in the same way that one would apply nail polish.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Another form of treatment, available at our clinic, is the Toenail fungus laser treatment; this could be your solution. It is simple – just walk in and walk out. The laser nail fungus procedure only takes 15-20 minutes. Unlike some medications, the laser treatment for nail fungus does not have any undesirable side effects.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The treatment includes targeting a laser beam on the affected nails to kill the fungus. The laser beam does not damage the nail or underlying nail bed. The results aren’t instantaneous, as the new nail grows normally only after the fungus is destroyed.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our laser kills the fungus that lives in and under the toenail or fingernail. The laser light passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. There is a warming sensation and some patients may feel a slight “pinprick”. In less than 20 minutes, your nail fungus could be a thing of the past.</p>
