Onychomycosis treatment

One of the causes of nail discoloration is a fungal infection. The infection usually starts on the side of the nail and usually it spreads to infect the whole nail and even the surrounding nails.

It is usually caused by a special type of fungus known as a dermatophyte. These sorts of fungi are generally confined to the dead, horny outer layers of the skin and gradually progress to involve the nail plate.

Onychomycosis is particularly common in toenails of older men but can affect all of the nails of individuals of any age and sex. The treatment of this condition is complicated by the fact that these fungi live in dead tissue, and getting medications to these sites is problematic.

What is the traditional treatment of onychomycosis?

Because most of these infections are relatively superficial, it would seem that topical treatments ought to work well. This is not the case because the nail unit is relatively impenetrable. In addition, it is common for these infections to be entirely asymptomatic (not producing symptoms), which doesn’t seem to diminish the patient’s distress with the unpleasant appearance of the nail. A perfect treatment modality would be inexpensive, very effective, and very safe. Sadly, we have not achieved this perfect situation yet.

Currently accepted treatments include relatively ineffective topical therapies and oral treatments which are reasonably effective but are associated with some degree of risk. Both approaches require a long duration of treatment and the topical therapies in particular are somewhat costly.

Most experts agree that surgical approaches like removing the nail plate are ineffective.
