Assessment and Treatments

Fungal nail infections

Fungal infections in the toenails often arise subsequent to Athlete’s foot, but can occur on their own. The toenails become thick and discoloured. This infection can be difficult to treat, especially if the nail bed is involved.

Our recommendation:

Seek help early: the more established a fungal nail infection becomes, the more difficult it is to treat. Treat any concurrent skin infection.

There are a number of treatment options for fungal toenails: oral medication, application of a topical anti-fungal or through intensive light therapy (eg. PACT). We will discuss the best option for you, depending on the severity of the infection. Regular thinning of the nail plate increases the effectiveness of the treatment.
