What Are Your Options for Treating Toenail Fungus?
When you realize you have a fungal toenail infection, it can become hard not to think about it.
Every opportunity to go open-toed in front of others can come with second thoughts. Do I really need to wear sandals to the beach? Maybe I don’t want to go swimming at the neighbors’ today.
And of course, you want those thick, brittle, discolored, misshapen nails gone.
No Better Time to Start Treating Fungal Toenails Than Now
Treating toenail fungus takes time. Even when the fungus has been totally eradicated from a nail, the effects of its stay there remain – like a hotel room trashed by a celebrity rocker.
Only when new nails grow out to replace what had been infected will you have completely clear nails once more. Because toenails grow at a relatively slow rate (around 2-3 mm per month on average), the entire process can take some time.
So, unfortunately, you can’t come to see us the week before a big event, and expect to have your toenails looking pristine by then. But for events further out in the future, beginning treatment as soon as possible will give you the best chances that your toenails will look great by the time the date arrives.
Do not delay coming to us if you even suspect you might be starting to get a fungal toenail infection. The early stages never look like the more severe symptoms you know. They tend to look more like white spots or streaks that don’t disappear with time or even start to grow and change shape. If we can diagnose a fungal infection and begin treatment at this time, results come much faster and easier.
And how do we fight for results against fungal toenails, you may ask?
