Onychomycosis, or foot fungus, is when the toenail becomes thickened and discolored to a shade of green, white, black, or yellow. Infected nails often appear crumbly and brittle with some pieces breaking away from the toe or finger completely. Although those afflicted will not likely face daily pain, if left untreated the toenail can become so thick that it can press against the inside of the shoes, causing pressure, pain, and irritation. Also, a fungal infection left untreated can lead to long-term complications such as infection spread to other areas of the foot
The use of Laser therapy has been introduced as effective treatment for onychomycosis. This Laser treatment kills the pathogens causing the nail fungus. This treatment is fairly new to the world of podiatric medicine but is extremely effective. The treatment takes about 20-30 minutes. It’s a patented device utilizing a very tight spectrum of near-infrared light, passing through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. Although the treatment is fairly new, many patients living in Nassau County have benefitted from the treatment of laser therapy for foot fungus. There are very few side effects associated with this treatment. Oral medications used to treat foot fungus are linked with side effects including damage to the liver, kidney, and eyes.
