Toenail fungus can really be unsightly, and it can be especially embarrassing during the summer months, when you would like to enjoy the beach or pool parties. Well you can either spend all summer hiding your toes away in the sand, or get some help. Getting help makes sense, because the high temperatures and humidity of summer, is likely to make the fungus a lot worse.
Toenail fungus is also known as onychomycosis, and is a disease that is present both inside and beneath the nail. The condition causes nails to become thick, discolored, and very brittle.
So what’s the best way to get rid of a toenail fungus? Topical creams and oral medications have traditionally been used to treat toenail fungus, but have only been minimally effective. In addition, the associated side-effects have made these options very undesirable. However, laser therapy has been found to be very effective in treating nail fungus.
