Onychomycosis, or fungal infection of nails-most often on the toes-affects about 12 % of Americans, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.  Some people are genetically prone to it.  Others, including swimmers and other athletes, may be more likely to get it because they go barefoot in public areas or because their feet are often damp.  In its mild forms, nail fungus is a cosmetic problem, but over time it can cause toenails to grow abnormally and become painful when walking.

Toenail laser treatment offers a new alternative to oral medication, which carries a risk of liver damage, and a nail lacquer, which has poor efficacy.

Treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes for up to 10 toes.  Depending on the severity of the problem, patients may need one to four treatments.  Once you have finished the treatment, the nail must grow out to see the results and this will take 3 to 5 months for the clear nail to emerge completely.  You will see the clear nail start to appear with the first month of growth.

To prevent fungus recurrence, you must follow a scrupulous hygiene program, including anti-fungal spray for feet and shoes, not going barefoot, keeping your shower clean, keeping feet clean and dry, and changing socks daily.
