Get rid of Toenail Fungus

Get rid of Toenail Fungus

Case Study 1


Can I get rid of toenail fungus easily that is a question that we are frequently asked. The answer is that the treatment of toenail fungus is one of the most difficult things in Podiatric Dermatology. There are a myriad of cures on the market all quote really high success rates. Over the years we have tried most of them or met patients that have treated their toenail fungus with them so sorting through them what works and what doesn’t work.

Well first of all we have found the topical treatments that one paints on the nail to be a total waste of time they simply do not work for the majority of patients. We hear anecdotal evidence like “it made my toenail much better” but the fact is it did not get rid of the toenail fungus and that is what we want nothing less that total resolution of the fungus.

Their are dozens of things suggested on the internet such as vicks vapor rub and the list goes on these things simply do not work. This leads us to the Oral medications.

With Oral Medications

These do work BUT their are 2 main concerns firstly there are serious side effects do a search yourself search Lamisil on the TGA website and the FDA website. You fill find this drug is toxic to the liver as well as many other side effects. The second concern is that only about 40% of the patients who take the medication will get rid of the toenail fungus when you couple this with the side effects, well we will let you be the judge of whether it is worth it or not.
