Solutions for Treating Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus, being a unsightly feet affliction, grows around the toes in brown and black. The fungus is also known for causing pain as it becomes overgrown and makes wearing shoes uncomfortable. The condition can also result in a foul odor as it accumulates underneath the toenails, even causing the nail to crumble. Some at-home remedies include applying tea tree oil, soaking your feet in mouthwash or apple cider vinegar. These solutions are powerful antiseptics that will help reduce fungus. It’s also recommended to get enough probiotics in your diet and keep your feet clean, especially in public wet areas.

While toenail fungus is troublesome to eradicate, it is not impossible. If you have any concerns regarding gout, consult with one of our podiatrists from Wayne Foot and Ankle Center, P.A.Our doctors will assist you with all of your foot and ankle needs.

Toenail Fungus Treatment

Toenail fungus is a problem which affects many people and is hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several methods to go about treating toenail fungus.

Antibiotics & Treatments 

Lamisil – is the most commonly effective treatment for toenail fungus. It is available as an antibiotic Terbinafine tablet and cream. Terbinafine is a chemical component which kills fungal growth on the body.  Applying regular doses will gradually kill the fungal growth. It is important to keep the area clean and air free.

Talcum powder – applying powder on the feet and shoes helps keep the feet free of moisture and sweat.

Sandals or open toed shoes – wearing these will allow air movement and help keep feet dry. They also expose your feet to light, which fungus cannot tolerate. Socks with moisture wicking material also help as well

Alternative Treatments

There are always surgical procedures that are available for toenail fungus. Some people would like immediate quick removal of toenail fungus. Surgeons will be able to cut through and remove the growth using laser surgery. It is important not to try and remove it yourself. Once removed, your old shoes will need to be replaced to avoid reinfection.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our offices located in Wayne & West Milford, NJ. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.
