How to Treat Toenail Fungus
If you have contracted toenail fungus, it is imperative you treat it as soon as possible to avoid potential spreading and infection. There are a variety of treatment options:
- Oral antibiotics must be taken for an extensive period of time, but works for about two out of three people who suffer from toenail fungus.
- Antifungal nail polish is FDA approved, but isn’t as effective as oral antibiotics.
- Many people shy away from using topical antifungals because a person must apply it on a daily basis for at least one year. These treatments are less effective because they do not directly target the affected area.
- Home remedies, such as the use of thymol oil, can help, but there is no concrete evidence that it can completely cure toenail fungus.
Laser therapy can permanently remove your toenail fungus within one treatment and is a painless process! To schedule a complimentary consultation with Clear Nails Colorado, call a specialist today.
