Anything Like This?

Fungal toenail infection, could cause the affected toe to separate from the nail bed and have a deformed appearance. Your crumbly and thickened toenail can become difficult to trim and wearing covered shoes can become painfully uncomfortable.

Left untreated, the infection can even spread to other toenails and cause other problems like a tinea skin infection between your toes, which makes the infection harder to treat.

Over The Counter
Products Not Helping?

There are plenty of over-the-counter (OTC) topical antifungals on drugstore shelves, most of which promise more than they deliver. If you have especially thick nails and/or advanced signs of fungal infection (such as discoloration and texture changes), these OTC agents are unlikely to be beneficial no matter how long you use them.

You’ve probably tried oral medications too. While oral antifungals can often eliminate the fungus systemically, they are not right for everyone, either because of cost, side effects, or a personal aversion to pills.

Why Cold Laser is Your
Best Choice For Fungus Treatment

heading strip
Laser is a major advancement in the treatment of fungal nail infections with an over 80% success rate, as published in clinical trials. Laser light is used to penetrate the nail plate, destroy the fungus in a series of treatments without damaging the nail or the skin around it. The procedure is pain-free and there are no side effects. After the treatment, the nail is able to grow out free of infection.

Frequently
Asked Questions

heading strip

Fungi called Dermatophytes live harmlessly on the skin. In a fungal infection these dermatophytes multiply if the conditions for them to thrive are just right, causing a huge increase in the incidence of dermatophytes. In fungal infections of the nail and skin the main dermatophytes involved are Trichophyton Rubrum and Trichophyton Interdigitale. Dermatophytes thrive in warm, dark, moist areas, which is why feet, shoes and socks are the perfect climate for them.

There are many factors that can increase your chances of developing a fungal infection, these include;

  • Being male
  • Increasing age
  • Occlusive footwear
  • Poor personal hygiene
  • Repeated nail trauma
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Health conditions such as Diabetes, poor circulation, HIV infection and immunosuppression

On the skin, Athletes foot can look like;

  • Itchy white patches between the toes
  • Red, sore flaky patches on the feet
  • Skin that may crack and bleed
  • Small broken blisters

In the nails;

  • Colour can change to brown, yellow, green and even black
  • Texture can change becoming thicker and more brittle
  • Often have a distinct musty smell
  • Stripes and lines can appear

Podiatrists commonly diagnose fungal skin infections by assessing your symptoms and looking at the skin on your feet.

Nail fungal infections often require testing to confirm a diagnosis. We can test a sample of nail with 97% of accuracy.

It is important to get a confirmed diagnosis from a health professional. If you have a Diabetes or any condition affecting your immune system, it is essential you seek medical advice prior to treatment.

At ModPod Nail Laser Clinic we use the Erchonia® Lunula Laser® which is a revolutionary low-level laser therapy bringing new hope to people suffering from onychomycosis. Safe and effective, Lunula Laser is the first and only non-thermal laser to receive FDA 510(k) Market Clearance for new clear nail growth. Lunula Laser poses none of the risks and harmful side effects of oral anti-fungal medications and is painless, unlike other laser therapies.

Prevention is easy;

  • Dry your feet carefully after bathing, pay special attention to between the toes
  • Change your socks daily- cotton or bamboo fibres are more breathable than synthetic materials
  • Wear shoes made from natural materials
  • Leave your shoes to dry out if they get damp
  • Wear flipflops in shared areas such as swimming pools and gyms
  • Don’t share towels, socks or shoes with anyone

If you suspect you have a fungal skin or nail infection and are not sure what to do, seek help from a Podiatrist. We are foot care professionals trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the feet.
