What is Onychomycosis?
Onychomycosis is a fungal nail infection that affects more than 35 million Americans each year. Onychomycosis fungi are dermatophytes that feast upon nail keratin. These life forms thrive in a warm, dull and clammy environment. There is no better place for these fungi to dwell and infect toenails than in shoes. Nails infected with Onychomycosis fungi have yellowing or white spots. As the infection develops, nails will get thicker, break, and stain further. It’s common for an onychomycosis infection in a single toenail to spread to other toenails on the same foot.
Treating Onychomycosis and Yellow Toenails
For quite a long time, topical arrangements were utilized to treat toenail fungus without much success. Then, oral meds were introduced, yielding mixed, mediocre results and more side effects. Today, the most successful and commonly used method of toenail fungus removal (onychomycosis) is laser treatment, which has been administered with great success to hundreds of patients right here in our Miami, FL office.
