Fungal Nail Infection


A fungal nail infection can target any part of the nail and affects the keratin, the hard substance which makes up the nail.

Fungal Nail Infection Treatment.

Fungal nail infections develop over time and are more commonly seen on toenails. Fungal nail infection treatment can be used to treat and cure the infection.

  • What causes a fungal nail infection?

    Fungal nail infections are usually caused by a type of fungi. A number of factors can increase the chance of contracting a fungal nail infection, such as:

    • Humid environments
    • Damage to the nail or nail bedding
    • Health conditions such as diabetes
    • Shoes that cause your feet to be hot or sweaty
  • What are the symptoms of a fungal nail infection?

    Fungal nail infections usually become noticeable by the thickening of the nail or visible discolouration. Usually, fungal nail infections do not cause any pain or discomfort and are merely aesthetically displeasing. However, in some cases without treatment they can become painful over a prolonged period of time.

  • Can fungal nail infections be treated?

    Fungal nail infections can be treated in a number of different ways. Antifungal tablets, antifungal solutions, removal of the nail, laser treatment and surgery are all possible fungal nail infection treatments.

  • What are the benefits of using a laser to fight a fungal nail infection?

    A laser is used to destroy the fungus causing the infection. This is a non-surgical and safe procedure. Fungal nail infection treatment like this takes less than an hour and nail growth usually happens between nine and twelve months later.

    Additionally, laser treatment for a fungal nail infection has no recovery time or side effects; this makes it a quick option in fighting a fungal nail infection.

  • Who will perform the fungal nail infection treatment?
