When should you visit a physician?

Before choosing to consult a doctor, people typically use self-care techniques and home cures to treat nail fungus. However, you need to contact a doctor immediately soon if the self-care measures are ineffective and your nails start to become more and more discolored, thicker, or malformed.

What Additional Options Are There For Toenail Fungus Treatment?

Here are some other toenail fungus treatment solutions for you!

Drug-infused nail polish

An antifungal nail polish may be recommended by your doctor. You apply it once daily to the skin around the diseased nails and nails themselves.

After seven days, you use alcohol to clear off the piled-on layers before starting fresh applications. This kind of nail paint can be required every day for practically a year.

Drug-infused nail cream

Your doctor could advise using an antifungal cream. After soaking, you apply this product into your affected nails. If you thin the nails beforehand, these lotions might work more effectively. This facilitates the medication’s penetration of the fungus beneath the hard nail surface.

You apply a non-prescription lotion with urea to thin your nails. Or, your doctor might use a file or another tool to smooth off the nail’s surface (debride). Rash is one of the negative effects of antifungal nail lotions.

Nail removal

If the infection is severe or other therapies are ineffective, your dermatologist may advise removing the infected nail(s). One of the following methods will be employed by your dermatologist to remove the nail:

  • Nonsurgical nail removal, which involves applying a chemical to the nail.

Both nail removal techniques can be done by your dermatologist in a clinic or medical office. Any technique will allow the nail to grow again. Your dermatologist can treat the nail so that it won’t grow back if the infection doesn’t go away.
