There has been a lot of interest regarding new treatments for fungal nails. At this point the options for treatment are as follows:
1. No treatment with trimming of affected thick nails or nail removal
2. Topical medication that is applied as a nail polish daily
3. Oral medication that can be taken for 3 months but has potential affects on your liver
4. Laser therapy that will kill the fungus in the nail plate from the high intense light.
Laser therapy is the newest therapy and quite effective. There have been many newspaper articles on this treatment and one is here for your reference. To see if you would be a good candidate for this treatment that is now offered at Central Massachusetts Podiatry please make an appointment to discuss your case.
