Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a very common problem. Symptoms include inflammation, swelling, a yellowing, thickening or crumbling of the nail. It is usually not painful, unless the infection spreads. The fungus tends to thrive under certain conditions, such as abnormal pH levels of the skin, a weakened immune system, continuous exposure to a moist environment including sweaty shoes and socks, poor hygiene and diabetes. If left untreated, toenail fungus can cause cracking, splitting and even complete loss of the toenail. The good news is that toenail fungus is treatable.
Laser is a very effective, 10 minute treatment that kills the fungus without the hassle of topical medications and the potential side effects of the pills. You will be able to resume your normal activities right away after treatment.
