Onychomycosis Toenail Fungus Treatment

Onychomycosis is a infection of the nail with fungus. Skin fungi not only can disfigure the nails but can also cause physical pain and impair the ability to work. Nail fungi affect toenails four times more often than fingernails. Once fungi take hold, it may spread from nail to nail, foot to foot, and rarely to the hands and fingernails.

When the nails are exposed to a warm moist environment, a fungus can develop on the nail or under its outer edge. This is called onychomycosis. Depending on the type of fungus, the nail may turn yellow, gray, brown, or black. The nail may become brittle and crack. It may separate from its bed. The surrounding skin may be red, itchy or swollen.

Topical nail fungus treatment is only 10% effective. Oral anti fungal pills are 50% effective and 3% of the time they have to be stopped because of changes in liver function.
