Laser Fungal Nail Treatment in and around the Plymouth Area

Fungal nail infections are common. They’re not serious but they can take a long time to treat. They usually affect your toenails, but you can get them on your fingernails, too.

A fungal nail infection occurs from the overgrowth of fungi in, under, or on the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments, so this type of environment can cause them to naturally overpopulate.

Fungal Nail Treatment

Topical treatments such as Curanail are licensed for A mild infection, affecting up to two nails but are unable to penetrate well under the nail. More extensive infections require a stronger approach requiring tablets such as terbinafine (Lamisil) or Sporanox (itraconazole) which are used with some success. Laser therapy uses light at particular wavelengths to interact with fungus without affecting the healthy skin or body.

Common Signs:

Common signs include:

  • • A distorted nail that may lift off from the nail bed.

    • An odour coming from the infected nail.

    • A brittle or thickened nail.

    A fungal infection of the nail may affect part of the nail, the entire nail, or several nails.
