Fungal Nails

Fungal nail also known as onychomycosis, is a fungal infection of the nail that can be caused by coming in direct contact with the fungus, developing it through poor hygiene or having a compromised immune system.

This fungus changes the appearance of the nail to thickened, sometimes thin/crumbly texture. The nail can start to change its colour to yellowish brown discoloration. Fungal nail can lead to irregular growth of the nail resulting in ingrown to nails.

Treating the fungal nails can be tricky as it doesn’t always involve one treatment to fix all. We understand having irregular and discoloured nails can be cosmetically unpleasing which is why correct diagnoses and treatment is very important. Treatments may include topical ointments, oral medication, laser therapy and specialised education.
