A spot on your nail might seem harmless. Like any minor wound, you would think it's temporary and will go away in no time. But what if your toenails and fingernails start getting thicker and losing colour? Many people suffer from fungal nail infections and still don't pay any attention to them. It's high time you should come out of the dark and learn about fungal nail infection treatment in London.
At The Harley Medical Foot and Nail Clinic, we have seen people struggling with infections, which has made us invest in laser therapy for our clients who wish to have normal-looking nails again. Our award-winning podiatry team has a wealth of experience treating toenail infections and toenail fungal cures and has treated 3000 very satisfied patients. From mild to extreme cases, our healthcare professionals treat each infection accordingly and do not suggest anything redundant to a patient’s health. Let us learn about those fungal nail infections and how they are caused.
Know About Fungal Nail Infections
Fungal nail infections are caused by a fungus that thrives in a warm and moist environment. They can be caused by many different types of fungi that live in the environment. Small cracks in the nail or the surrounding skin can allow these germs to enter your nail and cause an infection. It's contagious and spreads from one toe or person to another.
How Does It Look?
Fungus nails take up different appearances. The whole nail often looks thick or ragged and appears yellow, green, brown or black. An infected nail becomes fragile and might fall when you cut them. You might smell an unpleasant odour too.
The Importance of Laser Therapy
Clinical studies show that laser treatment selectively kills the fungal cells without affecting any surrounding area. The best part of the treatment is that it is pain-free and doesn’t require any local anaesthesia. There are no side effects and no recovery period.
How Do We Conduct Laser Treatments?
After running a diagnosis:

We will run tests to confirm your infection.
We will learn the cause of infection and be able to address it.
We will also create a management plan to outline the course of the treatment where not only we treat your infection but also prevent it from coming back.
