NAIL FUNGAL TREATMENT

Nail Fungal Treatment

Get rid of those nasty, stubborn fungal infections in finger- or toenails with effective recommended treatments by an experienced Dermatologist. 

NAIL FUNGAL TREATMENT

If you have been struggling with unwanted thick nails that have yellow, brown, green or even black discolouration on the nail or nail bed, you probably have a fungal infection. Fungal infections can be a challenge to get rid of, and over-the-counter medications are sometimes just not effective enough.

 
Knowing the exact cause of the infection will inform the most effective treatment strategy and your doctor will examine your condition and, in some cases, send a nail clipping or some debris from under the skin to a lab to help with analysis, diagnosis and treatment.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Many different types of fungi can be the cause of fungal infections. Contaminated floors, items or even other people can pass them onto you. Some of the most common causes are unsterilised nail cleaning and clipping equipment, public showers or spas.

Repeat infections are common and it might take months to see results, but this depends on the condition and the selected treatment strategy.

Ensure you always wear slippers or flip-flops in public bathrooms, saunas and spas. It’s imperative to ensure your nail salon uses sterilised equipment when you go for a manicure or pedicure. Keeping your nails clean and short is another effective way to reduce the chances of getting fungal infections.

Doctors generally use topical antifungal therapies, oral medication and sometimes laser technology to treat fungal conditions. Medicated nail polish and nail creams are also two great and easy topical solutions while laser treatment has proven highly effective in some instances.

If treated early enough, no surgery would be required. In extreme cases however the doctor might have to remove the entire, infected nail.
