Fungal Toenails: Comprehensive Treatment at Our Clinic

Fungal toenails, also known as onychomycosis, are a common and often stubborn fungal infection that affects the nails, particularly the toenails. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating fungal toenails, offering effective solutions to help our patients achieve clear, healthy nails and renewed confidence.

Understanding Fungal Toenails

Fungal toenails occur when fungi, such as dermatophytes, invade the nail bed, causing infection and subsequent changes to the appearance and texture of the nails. Common risk factors for fungal toenails include:

Exposure to warm, moist environments (e.g., public showers, swimming pools)

Poor foot hygiene

Trauma to the toenails


Weakened immune system


Symptoms of Fungal Toenails

Fungal toenails can present with a variety of symptoms, including:

Thickened, discolored nails (yellow, brown, or white)

Brittle or crumbly nails

Distorted nail shape

Separation of the nail from the nail bed (onycholysis)

Foul odor

Pain or discomfort

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer comprehensive treatment options for fungal toenails, tailored to each patient’s unique needs and preferences. Treatment may include:

Topical antifungal medications: Over-the-counter or prescription-strength topical antifungal creams, ointments, or solutions may be applied directly to the affected nails to eliminate the fungal infection.

Oral antifungal medications: Prescription oral antifungal medications may be prescribed to treat severe or persistent cases of fungal toenails. These medications work from the inside out to eradicate the fungal infection.

Laser therapy: Laser treatment may be recommended to target and destroy the fungus living within the nail bed, promoting clear nail growth without damaging surrounding tissues.

Surgical nail removal: In cases of severe or painful fungal toenails, surgical nail removal may be necessary to remove the infected nail and allow for the regrowth of a healthy nail.

Preventive measures: We provide education on proper foot hygiene and preventive measures to reduce the risk of recurrent fungal toenail infections, including keeping feet clean and dry, wearing breathable footwear, and avoiding walking barefoot in public places.
