  • Laser nail fungus removal - One toe

Nail fungus is a remarkably common but rarely spoken of condition that affects up to one in 15 of the population. Its clinical name is onychomycosis and it's believed to be at the root of nearly half of all nail problems. Laser treatment is the fastest and most effective way of dealing with it — thanks to ND Yag technology, no one need suffer this unpleasant condition any longer.

Nail fungus — the facts

More common in men than in women and increasingly common the older one becomes, nail fungus afflicts toenails more often than fingernails. Generally, damaged nails are infected by fungal organisms such as athlete's foot, dermatophytes, tricophytum, rubrum, candida and other types of yeast infection. Then long days in sweaty shoes act as an incubator for the infection to take hold and spread. Other factors that predispose towards it include:

  • nail biting
  • trauma
  • too small shoes or borrowing someone else's shoes
  • diabetes
  • psoriasis
  • immune compromise and poor health
  • excessive smoking
  • shared bathrooms, changing rooms and other contaminated floors
  • shared nail grooming equipment
  • lack of foot hygiene
  • damp footwear

Symptoms of nail fungus

Fungal nail infections become more unpleasant as the infection progresses. Symptoms may include:

  • Thickened, discoloured nail — yellow, orange, brown or white
  • Black or dark green areas where bacteria is present
  • Bleeding and bruising
  • Brittle, crumbling nail
  • Nail lifting from digit
  • Debris collecting under nail
  • Odour
