Toenail Fungus/Onychomycosis

Toenail fungus is very common and often challenging to treat, requiring the prolonged use oral anti-fungals.  Laser treatment kills the fungus.  Results are not immediate, as it takes anywhere from 3-12 months for the new, non-infected nail to grow.  We recommended that patients follow this preventive care regiment to avoid reinfection:

  1. Apply an antifungal cream for 2 weeks following the procedure;

  2. Always spray inside the shoes at the end of the day with an antifungal spray and avoid wearing the shoes for 2 days or use Steri-Shoe ultraviolet shoe sanitizers;

  3. After 2 weeks, spray the feet or fingers with anti-fungal spray on an ongoing basis;

  4. Change the sheets the 1st night after each treatment;

  5. Cleanse the floor of the shower before next use with a cleanser that includes bleach;

  6. Cleanse all nail instruments with bleach before using them again;

  7. Throw out any nail polish previously used on the nails;

  8. Exercise caution in public areas like hotel rooms and public showers.
