What is nail fungus?
Nail fungus is an umbrella term that describes several fungal organisms that can infect your nail bed. They can infect both your toe and fingernails. Some fungal infections are also caused by other substances like yeast or mold.
What causes it?
Most fungi like living in damp, warm environments. Most commonly you get an infection when fungal spores are present and there is a crack in your nail. Fungal infections are more common on the feet, because our shoes can create ideal conditions for them to grow. Other conditions like athlete’s foot can exacerbate the condition.
What is the treatment?
We use our laser treatment on the nail to focus and eliminate the fungus growing beneath it. Home remedies are not always effective, and laser treatments are often the most effective way to stop the fungus. We recommend three to four treatments approximately four to six weeks apart.
What happens if it is not treated?
If the fungus is left untreated it will continue to grow – it will cause pain and will make everyday things such as walking, exercising, and even typing difficult. Your nails will become increasingly brittle as well. For these reasons, we recommend treatment as soon as the fungus is detected.
