What is Toenail Fungus ( Onychomycosis )?
Toenail Fungus is a common nail infection that can cause the toenails to thicken and take on a yellowish or cloudy appearance. The nails can become rough and crumbly, or can even separate from the nail bed. Generally, there is no pain or physical symptoms, unless the disease has progressed to a severe stage of development.
As far as the available treatments, one can use over-the-counter antifungal creams & ointments , which are proven to be the least effective method, since they work only superficially.
Prescription medication can also be used to treat Toenail Fungus . These drugs are usually taken orally. They have frequently been associated with both a long list of side effects and liver toxicity. They are also rather pricey. A normal course of oral treatment for Toenail Fungus infection is 12 weeks.
Traditional drug-based Toenail Fungus treatment is relatively ineffective, and repeated Toenail Fungus reinfection is also common.
