Winter months are fantastic for spending time with family, hitting the slopes, drinking hot cocoa…and eliminating toenail fungus? Yes, you read that correctly. This time of year is ideal for tackling fungal nail issues. For starters, your feet are covered almost all of the time, so no one is going to notice that your nails are brittle and discolored. You can treat them discreetly! Also, starting a treatment program now will ensure that you have healthy, show-off-worthy nails when you hit the beach for Spring Break.
We have a variety of methods for helping you get rid of unsightly toenail fungus. Your infection may be treated with the use of prescription antifungal creams or gels. These are more likely to be successful for mild or newer cases, though. When creams and gels are not strong enough, we may try prescribing oral medication for hard-to-treat fungal infections. These pills will help attack the problem from the inside.
In addition to topical and oral medication, our office is proud to offer state-of-the-art laser treatment that is highly effective in cleaning up stubborn cases of fungal toenails. The laser light can penetrate the surface of your nail and reach the fungus that grows under it, thereby taking care of the problem at the source.
Start your fungal toenail treatment today and have the beautiful, healthy nails you deserve!
