FUNGAL NAIL INFECTIONS
How do tell there is a fungal nail infection?
Fungal nails become discoloured with yellowish-brown patches or white flecks within the appearance. The nails often become thickened and in the later stages nails start to crumble with a distinctive odour. Fungal nail infections are a progressive and contagious condition that without treatment will spread to other toes and from person to person. This is where Lunula cold laser can help (see below)
What is the cause of fungal infections?
The cause is a fungal organism called a ‘dermatophyte’ that lives within the nail and skin. The fungus absorbs keratin within the nail and also the skin causing Athletes Foot which is often seen as dry, sometimes itchy areas on the feet.
What fungal nail infection treatments are available?
Three options are available. Firstly, an oral medication from your GP is possible but it has significant and serious long-term health risks such as liver damage. Secondly, ‘paint on’ topical treatments from the pharmacy are an option, but success is limited resulting in continued fungus growth. Finally, Lunula cold laser treatment for fungal nail infections is simple and totally pain free with excellent clinical results offering the most effective solution.
