Fungal Nail Treatment
Fungal nail infections are a prevalent condition that we treat at Toorak Village Podiatry on a daily basis. The condition occurs when fungal spores invade the toenail, causing it to become discoloured, thickened and brittle.
Treatment for fungal nails typically involves assessment to diagnose the infection and determine the appropriate course of action. Often the nails require debridement and reduction of the thickened nail and oral or topical antifungal medication. At Toorak Village Podiatry we also offer laser treatment for fungal nails.
Often the treatment may take several months with regular reduction of the infected nail. It is important to manage the environment including decontaminating footwear and socks to prevent future infections. By working together with our podiatrists and taking preventative measures you can successfully treat fungal nail infections and prevent further complications.
