Have you recently observed your toenails turning yellow? Maybe you don’t have completely yellow toenails, but there’s a yellow streak on your nails or may be some other form of discoloration. This is typically because of a toenail fungus infection. Toenail fungus can cause nails to become thick, cracked, yellow, and frail in a way that looks awful and can be severe.
WHAT IS TOENAIL FUNGUS
Toenail fungus, or onychomycosis, is a common ailment that, if left untreated, can cause the individual to lose his or her toenail. You may have infected toenails if you are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:
- Discoloration (yellowing, yellow streaks, white spots, or streaks)
- Distorted or thickened nail
- Brittle, crumbly, or ragged nail
- Separation of nail from underlying skin
HOW TO GET RID OF TOENAIL FUNGUS?
There are various remedies for treating the fungus such as topical medications, prescription drugs, and homeopathic treatments. One of the most effective ways to treat fungus is Laser Toenail Fungus Removal treatment. Laser Toenail Fungus Removal treatment has become common since the procedure was approved by FDA (Food and Drug Administration). It works by wrecking the toe fungus in a nail and below the nail. By enhancing local blood circulation, it provides temporary relief of minor muscle and joint aches, pains, and stiffness: relaxation of muscle spasms, minor pain, and stiffness associated with arthritis. Patients can expect to see noticeable results within a few months when the cleared, healthy nails grow out. Laser treatment helps to alleviate from the pain associated with the fungus.
HOW EFFECTIVE ARE LASER TREATMENTS FOR TOENAIL FUNGUS?
Laser treatments for toenail fungus are extremely safe and effective. Clinical studies have found that over 60 to 65 percent of patients treated for toenail fungal infections show significant improvement.
