What Causes: Fungal Nail Infection (Onychomycosis)

Fungal nail infections can be caused by a variety of factors. They are often more common in older people, or those with poor immune systems, impaired peripheral circulation, and diabetes. Fungal nail infections can also be caused by wearing trainers for extended periods of time, or wearing footwear that makes your feet hot, sweaty and damp. If you have athlete’s foot, you may also be more susceptible to developing a fungal nail infection so it’s vital that you treat athlete’s foot as soon as it appears.

To help avoid fungal nail infections, make sure you regularly change your socks, keep your feet clean and dry, and don’t walk barefoot in communal areas such as leisure centre changing rooms and showers.

Treatment Options: Fungal Nail Infection (Onychomycosis)

You may be able to treat your fungal nail infection with an antifungal nail cream or tablets. However, if you have tried these options and/or your fungal nail infection is persistent and failing to clear, you may wish to consider laser nail fungus treatment.

At Este, we use the Alma Laser and ClearChoice machine. It works to penetrate the nail, getting deep to the root of the infection and destroying the fungus at its core.
