Antifungal Nail Polish Colors
Toenail fungus affects a lot of people. About 1 in 3 Americans have it, in fact. It’s scientific name is onychomycosis or tinea unguium, but most people simply call it what it is–ugly, unsightly, sometimes painful and thickened nail fungus. Antifungal Nail Polish in 27 gorgeous colors will protect as well as beautify your nails.
Nails take on a yellow, misshapen appearance. The nail also usually thickens and becomes brittle. Either way, you won’t be wanting to wear sandals.
So, what are your options?
Treatment of onychomycosis
This type of chronic fungal infection is often quite resistant to treatment. Most people who truly want their nails treated effectively see a Podiatrist. Options will depend on the severity of the infection, and even with prescription methods resolution can take months. Even if symptoms disappear completely, it’s still a good idea to use a topical medication to prevent reinfection.The new nail may be free of fungus, but still be missshapen. These topicals take a long time to work, sometimes years, and often they fail to work at all.
There are ways to look good while waiting for the nail to grow out…

Antifungal drugs, either oral or topical, may be prescribed to manage your nail fungus problems. In most situations, two approaches are combined for maximum effectiveness.
At home self-care treatments
In less severe cases, toenail fungus can be treated at home although this may take months or even years.
- Practice good hygiene. This includes trimming the nails carefully and keeping them a reasonable length. The surface of the nail can also be filed down to thin the nail, which will help it “breathe,” and will help any topical medication that’s being used to reach the tissue under the nail.
- Prior to filing down thick nails, it pays to apply a urea based cream which softens them(available through your podiatrist). If patients have a history of poor circulation and diminished sensation, as with diabetes, it’s best to have a podiatrist take care of even simple aspects of care such as trimming.
Many over-the-counter (otc) ointments and creams are available. Apply per directions, but generally these are applied daily, and tend to work best after the feet have been soaked, or more conveniently after a shower.
Getting an appointment to discuss Antifungal Nail Polish Colors
Your primary care physician (PCP) will likely refer out to a specialist, such as a podiatrist. A Podiatrist can evaluate the infecting organism and find the most appropriate therapy for your specific problem. They will look at causative factors to help prevent reinfection after treatment.
