Topical Antifungal Creams and Ointments
These antifungal creams would be the treatment of choice if they were highly effective, but that’s the problem. You need to use these over the counter (otc) remedies for literally years. They are generally completely side effect free, and don’t cost much money. They’re also a good option to prevent reinfection after another, more successful treatment method.
Each of the antifungal creams and products below are best suited for a particular purpose. We will help you select the appropriate product for your set of conditions. This is the reason drugstore products often fail. There are very distinct differences between the products that will help lead to succuss or failure. Helping you choose the correct one saves you from wasting both your money and your time and gives you the results you want!
How much does the average laser treatment cost?
For starters, it’s extremely unlikely that your health insurance will pay for laser toenail fungus treatments. The condition is considered cosmetic as opposed to medical. Given the cost of the lasers themselves, it isn’t at all surprising that these treatments can be costly. It’s going to be an out of pocket expense.
How much, then, does treatment cost? It varies from state to state and geographic area to area, yet prices of $1000 are not uncommon. Bear in mind that this will usually cover the series of treatments that will be needed to resolve your situation–a single treatment is never sufficient. Usually about 3 to 5 are needed to achieve peak results.
Are there side effects of treating fungal nails with medical grade lasers?
Most facilities that perform this type of procedure claim that there aren’t any side effects whatsoever. Short term clinical data supports this, yet longer term research is needed before a conclusion can be reached.
The main issue here is that there hasn’t been enough time to truly study the long term effects of such treatments. Laser nail treatments do however have many vocal proponents, podiatrists and dermatologists among them. In their minds, good short to mid term results speak for themselves, and they believe that time and continued research will settle the question for good.
Oral Antifungal Medications vs Antifungal Creams
Oral medications are a proven treatment, and have a reasonably high rate of success (about 70%). This class of medication is known for its side effects, however, which include nausea, diarrhea, and skin rashes. Worse yet, these antifungals are very tough on the liver, and in some cases can cause severe damage. This type of treatment isn’t for those with pre-existing liver issues, and will require routine lab work to look at liver function throughout treatment for everyone else. In terms of price, they’re much cheaper than other options, and are usually covered by insurance. Antifungal Creams don’t have those complications.
