Have you tried over the counter or prescription drugs that have failed or are taking too long to take effect? One of several antifungal pills may help but they can take many months to do the job, or not work at all. Prescription medications also come with side effects like nausea, vomiting, and headaches. If you are experiencing this, then the laser treatment option would be a much better option for you.
Additionally, nail removal might be suggested by your doctor, if the infection is deep and you’ve had it for a while. Your doctor may want to remove all or part of your nail. A new nail usually grows back, but it might take a year or so and the fungus may return with the new growth. Laser toenail fungus treatment is the best and only viable option available at the moment, and treatment protocols have improved since its introduction.
Finally, if you have other underlying health conditions, it is important that you treat your toenail fungus promptly. If you have a disease like diabetes, your doctor will encourage you to treat nail fungus. This illness often makes you more likely to have other problems from minor foot issues.
