Fungal Nail Treatments

Left untreated, fungal nail infections can affect the entire nail and surrounding skin.

Conventional treatment of such infections may include the following:
  • Anti-fungal pills.
  • Anti-fungal creams, lotions, gels.
  • Surgical removal of the infected nail.
People with nail infections sometimes treat them using one of these methods or a combination of therapies.

If you have a nail that is discolored or damaged but not painful, you may opt for simple over-the-counter treatments. Early treatment can stop the infection from causing serious and often permanent damage to the nail.

A small percentage of fungal nail infections affect the surface of the nail, are within the nail itself, or occur in the skin at the base of the nail.
