There are several topical medications available to treat fungal infections. However, for the most part are used to contain the infection and aren't very useful in curing it. The more effective drugs used to cure nail fungus are taken orally such as itraconazole (Sporanox), fluconazole (Diflucan), and terbinafine (Lamisil). These drugs have good blood absorption and have been shown as an effective treatment for nail fungus. These drugs can have serious side effects and patients must be monitored during treatment. In some cases removal of the nail may be an option while treating the nail bed and the new growing nail with a topical treatment. Laser treatment is also an option. This treatment uses a laser that penetrates the nail and destroys fungal cells while passing harmlessly through healthy cells.

If you feel you have fungal nails or have questions about this condition make an appointment with us here at Atlantic Foot and Ankle where our doctors will be happy to evaluate your nails and discuss treatment options with you.
