Fungus Toenail

Fungus Toenail

If you think you have fungus in your toenail you should have it professionally assessed at Brighton Podiatry we use the latest Laser Technology to treat a nail infected with fungus. This involves using a laser to destroy the fungus which is living within the Keratin matrix of the nail.

The laser destroys the fungus and inactivates any spores that are in the toenail the result is as the nail grows the fungus grows out with the nail. There should be a slow clearing from the base of the nail which will continue until all the fungus in the toenail has grown out.

This whole process can take up to 12 months for the nail to appear totally clear.

What does a Fungus Toenail look like

The nail will generally appear slightly thickened and discoloured the discolouration will be typically a white to yellowish colour. The infection will spread across the nail plate very slowly typically for the whole nail plate to become infected will involve many years. The infection will also spread from toe to toe again very slowly.
