Don't let toenail fungus take over your life! Taking the right steps to prevent it from spreading is essential. Many people suffer from fungal nail infections, which can be transmitted from one person to another under the right circumstances. To avoid this, it's important to not share nail or foot care tools, apply antifungal powders or sprays to the inside of the shoes, and wear clean, breathable socks to bed. Drugstore antifungal creams and lacquers have a low success rate and require multiple daily applications, so prevention is much better and easier than cure.
If you are currently dealing with a fungal nail infection, there are practical steps you can take to help stop it from spreading to other members of your household. The biggest danger of not treating foot or toenail fungus is that it can spread to other parts of the body, such as the hands and groin. Misdiagnosing toenail fungus can cost you time and money when trying over-the-counter products that don't work. Foot and toenail fungus is a serious nuisance, but it can also become a serious health problem, especially if you have diabetes or a weakened immune system.
Only a laboratory test with a toenail scrape can show with certainty that fungi are responsible for nail distortion. The most effective treatment for nail fungus that we have seen in our years of podiatry and that helps our patients achieve better results is laser treatment. This involves gently but effectively heating the nail plate to destroy the living fungus and its spores. Book your appointment with us by calling (0) 8405 6850 or book online.
If you want to take control of your foot or toenail fungus, prevention is key. Start by avoiding sharing any nail or foot care tools with others. Make sure you apply antifungal powders or sprays inside your shoes and wear clean, breathable socks when you go to bed. Over-the-counter antifungal creams and lacquers may not be as effective as laser treatment, so it's best to consult with a podiatrist if you suspect you have a fungal infection.
