Nail fungus is unsightly, difficult to treat and difficult to prevent. Nail fungus is a fungal infection that develops under the body's nails and is more common in toenails than in fingernails. And laser fungus toenail treatments have been clinically proven to be 77% to 90% effective with 5 mm of new clear nail growth. I combined this treatment with a natural treatment and gently filed my nails so the treatment could be absorbed better.

Liver damage is one of the most concerning side effects of some toenail fungus medications. Although it starts innocuously enough as a white or yellow spot underneath your finger or toenail, a fungal infection can cause the area to thicken and even crumble as it penetrates deeper and deeper.

Causes and symptoms vary greatly from person to person so if you're questioning whether or not you have toenail fungus then consult with your local podiatrist. If not treated, it can spread to other nails as well. For most people, the cracking or peeling skin or the crumbly, yellow toenails that the fungus causes are an itchy, painful irritation and a cosmetic embarrassment in public.

Yet a fungal infection can ruin the appearance of your nails and cause pain as it lifts the nail away from the nail bed. The toenail can separate from the bed and the edge of the toenail can become severely eroded. Trimming your nails too short is another common cause of fungus.

When the infection has not yet started, you can try soaking your foot with the ingrown toenail in a basin of warm water to soften the granulation tissue that has formed over the nail. Surgical treatment of onychomycosis involves nail removal. All 18 participants reported being satisfied or very satisfied with the results of using the rub on their toenail fungus.

If the newly grown-out nail is growing out discoloured, further treatment is required. Treatment for a fungal nail infection includes using medicines and possibly removing the affected nail. Regrowth of toenails may take over a year to occur. Examples of such infections are vaginal yeast infections, thrush (infection of tissues of the oral cavity), skin, including diaper rash, beneath large breasts, and nailbed infections.
