Understanding Fungal Nail Treatment

If you’ve ever had a fungal nail infection before, you’ll understand how frustrating it can be. Fungal infections are caused by a group of fungi known as ‘dermatophytes’, which enter and grow in nails and skin. Once the infection has invaded, you will likely notice the aesthetic changes first. Infected skin can become red, blistered, and flaky. Infected nails will often start to show discolouration first.

Typically, patients with a fungal nail infection will first notice that their toenails are becoming yellowish or brown. As the infection progresses, the texture of the nail itself will start to be impacted. Symptoms can include thickening of the nails, a brittle and crumbly texture, and in some cases an unpleasant smell. Visiting a psychiatrist can help diagnose your infection and find a treatment option that works best for you.

When to Seek Fungal Nail Treatment

The earlier you intervene in an infection, the easier it is to mitigate the issue. Here at Talaria, our podiatrists are able to not only diagnose conditions, but also provide education and individualised treatment options to resolve issues and limit the risk of the infection reoccurring. There is a range of conditions that can sometimes be mistaken for fungal infections, so the sooner you address any concerns you may have, the sooner we can help you find an appropriate treatment.

Don’t waste time trying to treat a condition you might not actually have. Trust our skilled team to provide a full assessment of your nail, diagnose any fungal infections that may be present, and explain the best course of action moving forward. A physical examination will typically be enough to accurately diagnose a fungal nail infection, though our clinic can offer further tests as necessary to confirm.

How Fungal Nail Treatments Can Help

Fungal nail treatments at Talaria Podiatrist are designed to destroy the living fungus. Potential treatment options may include medications or medical laser treatment. While these options may not reverse the visible damage the fungus has done to your nail, our team can also offer options to help with cosmetic improvements.

When nails become thick, brittle, and discoloured, many people can start to feel embarrassed about the way they may look. Not only can we offer treatment options to get rid of the infection and help you prevent it from happening again, but we can help get your nails looking natural again in no time. We have options such as KeryFlex nail restoration, which is specifically designed to restore the appearance of your nail.

Fungal Nail Treatment: How It Works

Treatment options such as topical and oral medications seek to kill the fungi that have infiltrated your skin or nails. However, it can take months for fungal nails to completely resolve and return to their natural aesthetic. With the help of the KeryFlex restoration system, our clinic can give your nails a healthy and smooth appearance as you wait for the infection to subside. This treatment is exclusive to trained podiatrists, and our team is qualified to remodel and restore a natural nail aesthetic with KeryFlex. Typically, this application will last at least six weeks.

Your Fungal Nail Treatment Questions Answered

Nail fungus can manifest in several different ways. You may notice that your nail bed becomes painful or tender, that the skin around the nail becomes red or flaky, or that pieces of your toenail break off or become crumbly. The most common signs include the nail becoming yellowish, brittle, and thickened.

Different cases are going to require different treatments. Many patients will require either topical treatments or oral treatments. Oral options may include medication or tablets to kill the infection, while topical treatment may involve creams or other products applied directly to the infected nail.

No, you do not need a referral to book an appointment at Talaria Podiatrist. Simply book your time slot, and we’ll be glad to help you address your affected nails and prevent further infection.
