Are you suffering from a severe case of toenail fungi and are wondering about the treatment options available? It is a good question especially when nail fungi are some of hardest infections to treat. Unfortunately, nail fungus is also one of the most common foot problems mostly affecting men and women above age 40. If that sounds a lot like you, then you would do well to learn what you can about the fungal infection and the different options to eliminate them.

Before and after pictures of toenail fungus – how can you achieve the same results?

So how do you get rid of nail fungus? You may have already seen images of people recovering from the stubborn infection and wondering how you can experience the same. People often do not think about, but no other area of our body is as vulnerable to fungal nail infections (Onychomycosis).

Fungi thrive in warm and humid conditions which are often the case when wearing wet and uncomfortable shoes for many hours on a given day. It is also possible for people to get infected with toenail fungi by sharing pools, sauna or shower rooms with others that have the condition.

Over the counter treatment for toenail fungus

So how do you treat toenail fungus? Well, there are some home remedies and over the counter medications that you can use. For one thing, there are essential oils that can help you flush the infection out of your system.

So what essential oils are good for toenail fungus? There are a number of them, however two of them are the most effective – oregano oil and tea tree oil. Both have potent anti-fungal properties that can help treat minor cases of toenail fungi. The same goes for antifungal drugs that you can buy over the counter.

In severe cases of toenail fungus, home remedies and OTC antifungal drugs may not be enough to eliminate the infection altogether or prevent it from reoccurring. Such treatment is unlikely to have any lasting effect on fungal growth embedded deep within the nail. In such circumstances, it would be best to seek the help of a “foot expert” who is in the best position to help. Only a podiatrist has special knowledge and experience treating toenail fungus and can prescribe far more robust solutions including extensive therapy and the use of cutting-edge technology such as a laser toenail anti-fungal treatment.
