Toe Nail Fungus Laser Treatment – South Florida

Laser treatment is a growing treatment for the unsightly condition called onychomycosis. Onychomycosis refers to a fungal infection of the nail, although most common in toe nails it can also occur in finger nails. Nail fungus is the most common disease of the toe nails and constitutes about a half of all nail abnormalities. This condition may affect toenails or fingernails.

There Are Four Types of Toenail Fungus:
1. The most common form is distal subungual onychomycosis, which invades the nail bed and the underside of the nail plate.
2. White superficial onychomycosis is caused by fungal invasion of the superficial layers of the nail plate.
3. Proximal subungual onychomycosis is fungal penetration of the newly formed nail plate through the proximal nail fold.
4. Candidal onychomycosis is the invasion of the fingernail, usually occurring in persons who frequently immerse their hands in water.

Toe Nail Fungus Symptoms
• Thickening of nail
• Toenail discoloration (white, black, yellow, or green)
• As the infection progresses the nail can become brittle, with pieces breaking off or separating away from the toe or finger completely.
• If untreated, the skin can become inflamed and painful underneath and around the nail.
